Wild Abandon Weekend with Chateau Montelena

The Experience

World renowned Chateau Montelena of Napa Valley takes residence for a weekend of wine in the Wasatch mountains. The complex flavors of their wines are the result of their unique soil diversity which ranges from volcanic to sedimentary to alluvial. Experience their revered vintages through thoughtfully curated, nature-driven events such as picnics, hikes, an outdoor screening of the film Bottle Shock, and staggered wine tastings "in the field."

Thursday, June 24 | 6pm - 9pm

Savor elevated farm-to-table picnic fare from James Beard Award-Winning Executive Chef Galen Zamarra while viewing an al fresco screening of Bottle Shock
  • Bottle Shock, the charming 2008 movie based in Napa Valley, has become a favorite film for many wine lovers. It tells the story about how a chardonnay crafted by a Napa Valley winery beat every French competitor in the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, a feat that was unthinkable at the time. The wine, made by Chateau Montelena, became a symbol of the burgeoning California wine scene, introducing the world to the wines of Napa Valley and cementing Northern California as one of the premier wine-growing regions in the world.

Meet the Vintner
Chateau Montelena Chief Executive Officer Bo Barrett
Bo Barrett Bio

Bo Barrett oversees strategic planning for the winery and vineyard operations. His commitment, however, extends beyond the wine, to the people, the creative spirit and the story behind it all. Bo has been involved in every vintage at Montelena since his family assumed ownership in 1972. While completing his degree in Viticulture and Enology at Fresno State, Bo spent each fall at Chateau Montelena working harvest. In 1982, Bo earned the appointment to winemaker, and was subsequently appointed to Chief Executive Officer in 2013. He credits his father, and winery founder, Jim Barrett for his work ethic and unrelenting persistence. “When my father started this winery, his goal was to take the incredible fruit from this historic piece of land and make the best wine we possibly can.” Bo continues to honor his father’s mission by creating wines that transcend ratings or trends, and remain true to the origins of Montelena.
