Where else do you begin a wine tour other than in the iconic Napa Valley. Even more iconic is Chateau Montelena that has played a big role in putting California on the world wine map since 1882. The live tours will include everything that you will experience during an actual tour. Winery operations, Q&As, and of course the sought-after wine tastings. If you don’t want to do the live sessions, you can check out their virtual tour starting from the gorgeous chateau all the way to underground wine caves and acres of vineyards.
