In 1882 Alfred Tubbs purchased 254 acres of rugged land at the base of Mount Saint Helena and planted vines.1972 was the Barrett’s first vintage at Montelena.
In 1976 a who’s who of the French wine and food establishment gathered for ‘The Judgement of Paris’. Four white Burgundies were tasted against six California Chardonnays. Chateau Montelena’s 1973 was voted number One.
