Chateau Montelena was founded in 1882 by Alfred Tubbs. The renaissance of the winery, under the leadership of James Barrett, began in 1972 with the replanting of the Estate vineyard and the establishment of the Chateau Montelena philosophy: make the best, period. Today the tradition continues. Jim Barrett’s son, Bo, winemaker at Chateau Montelena beginning in 1982, is now its Master Winemaker. After more than three decades of experience with the same vineyards and varieties, the Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Napa Valley Chardonnay are recognized as world-class.

The wines at Chateau Montelena are often described as having classic "old-world" structure with ripe California fruit, the 2011 vintage is an excellent example of the stylistic target of this wine. What that means is that these wines tend to have more acid, lower pH and more moderate alcohol levels as compared to some of the flashy "modern" Cabs. This classic chemistry allows them to pair very well with a wide variety of dishes and sets them up for graceful aging.
