Trip Planner: USA / California / Napa Valley / Calistoga / Chateau Montelena
Try the award-winning Chardonnay, along with other delicious wine varieties, at Chateau Montelena. In 1976, the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay won the Paris Tasting and created a lasting reputation for California winemaking. Today you can explore the 103 hectare (254 acre) property, including vineyards originally planted in 1896 by Alfred Loving Tubbs and replanted in 1972. Enjoy a picnic by the Chinese garden and Jade Lake. The winery offers several different tours, including current tastings, limited-release tastings, and vineyard tours, where you'll learn about Napa Valley winemaking and what makes these particular wines worth tasting. Finally, sample the wines made on site. Wines are available for purchase from the wine shop. Plan to visit Chateau Montelena and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Calistoga attractions using our Calistoga trip planning site.
Chateau Montelena reviews
Nice winery to wander around the grounds and go inside for a tasting. The wines were tasty and the tasting guide (Tash) was very friendly.

Beautiful grounds and personable service. The wine tasting was standing up at the bar, and our host was very informative and friendly! A lot of the wine tastings we did today almost felt like a revolving door, but Chateau Montelena definitely kicked it up a few notches! This was our last stop during a private tour and we are so glad we wrapped our day here! The property made me glad that I brought my nice camera. Thanks again.
Better than you can ever imagine! I recommend an early tasting here, so you have room to explore the grounds. They have a beautiful garden and lake area I could have explored all morning. The Chateau has a rich history with people who care. Lin wowed me during our tasting experience. She is genuine, kind, and truly a pleasure to spend time with. They have some wonderful collateral explaining the soil where the grapes are planted. Left with a couple of bottles. Will be back for more.
