Let’s Tour The 7 Prettiest Wineries in Napa Valley

Chateau Montelena

The famed Chateau Lafite is said to be the architectural inspiration of the building. In fact there is good reason to believe that the architect and the masons were brought in from France to build it. The stones used were sourced from all of America. This is the aspect that differentiates this winery from all the others made from wood. The thickness of the walls ranges from 3 to 12 feet. It looks like a gatehouse.
