On May 24th, 1976, the world of wine was turned upside down when the Chateau Montelena 1973 Napa Valley Chardonnay triumphed over Burgundy and the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon bested Bordeaux. This year we commemorate the 40th anniversary of the now infamous Judgment of Paris Tasting.
To celebrate this California victory, Chateau Montelena will be hosting an Open House event in Calistoga on Tuesday May 24th, Bring your cameras and bring your questions because we’ll have artifacts from the the Paris Tasting and a discussion panel prepared to take on your queries.
Mark your calendars for this truly special celebration. We’re excited to show off our 2013 Napa Valley Chardonnay…and who knows, we may have something older to taste. We’ll be waiting for you with a glass of Chard from 9:30am – 4:00pm. Participate in our discussion panel from 1:30pm – 2:30pm.
These kids from the sticks can’t wait to see you!
