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.

Bo Barrett has been involved in every vintage at Montelena since 1972. We are very lucky to have him presiding over the dinner and giving an insight into these fantastic wines.
