CHATEAU MONTELENA

27 February 2013 News

Market Watch just published an article featuring Chateau Montelena and its recent recognition: the U.S. National Park Service has named the Calistoga Chateau Montelena to the National Register of Historic Places. The historic stone winery was finished in 1888 by Alfred L. Tubbs and was bought by Jim Barrett in 1972. “It goes back a lot farther than people give us credit for,” says Jim’s son Bo Barrett, current master winemaker and partner in the family-owned winery. “We were pretty stoked to see that our family’s and the Montelena Team’s contributions were deemed by others to be so historic in Napa Valley, California and U.S. history. I have to say it is a huge compliment and we all are extremely honored.”¬†Click here to read the full article and more about the history of Chateau Montelena.
