If interested in California wine, here is a tasting.


Celebrate the new Calistoga AVA with Chateau Montelena

Chateau Montelena would like to invite you to join us on March 11th in celebration of the newly appointed Calistoga AVA, the 15th appellation in the NapaValley. 7 long years ago our winemaker, Bo Barrett, on behalf of Chateau Montelena petitioned to have Calistoga formally recognized as an American Viticultural Area, and as of January 2010, we are proud to say that it has been approved.

To celebrate this achievement, we will be pouring a 3-year vertical of our acclaimed Estate Cabernet. One of the most significant contributing factors to making a wine unique is the place that the grapes are grown, and our vineyards in Calistoga and their diverse soils are what make our Estate wine special and exemplary of the essence of the Calistoga AVA.

For our vertical tasting we will be pouring the 1997, 1998 and 1999 vintages of the Montelena Estate Cabernet and will be offering a charcuterie selection to accompany the wines. In addition we will have maps and information to educate you about the Calistoga area and how it influences our winemaking style.

This is a rare opportunity to taste 3 highly acclaimed vintages side-by-side and space will be limited. Tickets will go on-sale Wednesday February 24th and will be $40 per person. The tasting will take place in the Private Dining Room at Press Club and will begin at 6pm and we will pour until 8:30pm. Tickets will be available exclusively at Press Club from the Chateau Montelena representatives or through a retail associate.
