Chateau Montelena WineryChateau Montelena celebrates 40 years since their 1973 Chardonnay beat French and American competitors in a blind tasting of wines in Paris. To celebrate the anniversary, Master Winemaker and CEO Bo Barrett (left) and Winemaker Matt Crafton (right) will tour the country tasting the latest wine releases and participating in retrospective tastings. “When our wine was selected as an entry to the Paris Tasting 40 years ago, we couldn’t have imagined the impact it would have on the American and global wine industry,” said Barrett. “After the win, Dad really said it best, ‘Not bad for kids from the sticks.’ Looking back, the Chardonnay’s four-decade legacy enabled us to launch our flagship Estate Cabernet from this special place.”
