THE CHATEAU MONTELENA TASTING ROOM AT THE WESTIN ST. FRANCIS ON UNION SQUARE
The elegant Westin St. Francis is a world class hotel and what better amenity could you ask for than a world class winery’s Tasting Room and Specialty Store located in the lobby.
That’s right, guests and the general public can enjoy the chance to taste and purchase the iconic wines of Chateau Montelena. In a blind tasting in 1976 at the Tasting of Paris, the French judges named the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay the best white wine.
We experienced a lovely tasting with Manager, Russell Chang and our “Absolute Must Tries” are the mighty, yet elegant Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, 2011; the Chateau Montelena Chardonnay, Napa Valley, 2012; the Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012 and the Chateau Montelena “Potter Valley” Riesling, 2013. A dedication to excellence and deep historical roots make Chateau Montelena and the Westin St. Francis a perfect pairing! For more information please visit www.montelena.com.
