2017 is the 41st anniversary of "The 1976 Judgement at Paris" that stunned the wine world when white and red wines from Napa Valley were deemed to be the best in a tasting against the top wines from Burgundy and Bordeaux. The winner in the white wine tasting was the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay. Chateau Montelena continues to produce some of Napa Valley's best wines.

Our reception and dinner in the winery's Grand Room will be an anniversary celebration of the event that put Napa wines on the world wine map. The winery's best wines, including some from their library, will be poured during the evening along with a fantastic dinner in the beautiful Grand Room.
