It started with mass replanting and reimagining of the winery cellars, and resulted in the 1976 Judgement of Paris, where the 1973 Chateau m ontelena Chardonnay scored first place against the best of Burgundy in blind tastings. Today, Jim's son, Bo continues his father's legacy, looking only to refine his processes, while respecting the natural ecosystem within their vineyards.
