Your Team's Experience

In 1972, Jim Barrett bought a crumbling estate in Napa Valley. He knew little about wine. But he knew how to hire curious people and give them space to innovate.

Four years later, Chateau Montelena produced the world’s #1 rated wine – starting a 40+ year run of producing winning wines.

Your team will taste amazing wines while exploring lessons from the birth of America’s wine industry. You will learn why “curiosity” is the core of the winery’s culture – and how curiosity is sustained in an industry known for tradition.
