Chateau Montelena received international recognition at the historic Paris Wine Tasting of 1976 when their Chardonnay won first prize among white wines, much to the chagrin of the French. Randall Miller's Bottle Shock, filmed at Chateau Montelena Winery and Napa and Sonoma counties, is the true story of this little-known winery and its triumph over the French.

Wine & Spirits Magazine rating 92 points:
This was Matt Crafton’s first vintage as winemaker at Chateau Montelena, having joined as assistant winemaker in 2008. The wine’s fruit tastes of sweet red plums, while its scent hints at violets and roses. The tannins ground it in Calistoga, with an iron-like note under mint, and cocoa richness. Decant it if you open the wine now, for seared duck breast, or hold onto it for five or six years.

2014 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay, Napa
Ripe peach, pear and cloves dominate the nose amidst a flurry of floral and honeysuckle notes. There’s a wonderful fullness and weight on the palate punctuated by ripe melon, green apple, and fresh citrus. The oak contribution remains subtle with a hint of vanilla and baking spice. The density of the wine is readily apparent as grilled pineapple, lychee, and a rich creaminess linger.
