…and that’s what happened when Chateau Montelena’s 1973 Chardonnay landed California on the front page of Time Magazine. The news sent shockwaves through the wine world. It was unheard of at that time that any wine, other than French wine, could possibly be such a fine wine; especially when the judges were connoisseurs of the French wine and food establishment.
Blindfolded, the judges believed that such a fine wine they were drinking was surely a French wine, and so the Chateau Montelena 1973 Chardonnay received high marks. The unexpected results put California in the forefront of the wine world while encouraging wine makers around the world that they too could be recognized as worthy wine makers.
As paving stone connoisseurs, System Pavers has been contracted to lay paving stones on Chateau Montelena. Being in the business of quality, Chateau Montelena was able to recognize quality of System Pavers. They chose System Pavers because of their proven dedication to the quality of their paving stone craft as well as the fact that System Pavers will work without interrupting the Chateau Montelena business.
The first phase – which breaks ground today - will include a few walkways and outdoor dining areas.
