Montevina Winery Launches New Look


Date: 11/06/13

Historic Amador County winery celebrates 40th vintage with bold new packaging

img 1Montevina Winery unveiled a contemporary new package for its portfolio of wines with a clean, bold and bright label, modern logo, and a new luxury bottle. The Pinot Grigio, White Zinfandel and Chardonnay are now shipping. The Montevina line of wines also includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Barbera and Zinfandel, all of which will convert to the new packaging over the next few months.

Montevina Winery is located in the Sierra foothills and was founded by Cary Gott (father of renowned Napa-valley winemaker Joel Gott) in 1970. The first vintage of Montevina wines was released in 1973, and the winery quickly became well-known for its robust red wines, particularly the Zinfandel and Barbera varietals, which maintain those same regional characteristics today. The grapes for the Zinfandel, White Zinfandel and Barbera are sourced from 400 acres of Amador County estate vines, and the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay are sourced from premium vineyards in California selected for their true varietal character.

Montevina wines are crafted by California-native winemaker Chris Leamy. Leamy is deeply committed to Montevina, and can be seen at the winery with his signature purple “Harvest hair.”

Montevina wines retail for $8.99.
