Our winemaking team talks about the process of assembling our flagship wine each year and the confluence of factors that make Monte Bello Estate one of the most unique terroirs in the world.
“With each vintage, you have a chance to make the finest wine you’ve ever made. And, you have a chance to use what you learned the previous years to really understand your vineyards; understand how the weather varies, how you vary your traditional techniques to deal with those grapes to make the finest wine.”
-Paul Draper, Longtime Winemaker & Chairman
