Chateau Montelena’s rich history began on a chilly fall morning in 1882 when Alfred L. Tubbs spaded over and inspected the soil where he thought of planting estate vineyards. It took less than a decade to turn his dream into reality. First Tubbs planted his vineyards. then he built his Chateau. and in 1886 he imported a French-born winemaker. By 1896 his winery. christened Chateau Montelena (a contracted form of Mount Saint Helena). was the seventh largest in the Napa Valley.
