November 2nd was the date when Yelp stormed the castle!
35 lucky Yelpers were treated to a V.I.P. tour/tasting at Napa Valley's legendary Chateau Montelena. Guests were escorted around the magnificent property & lake via a “golf cart limo” and regaled with stories of the winery's rich history. For those of you unfamiliar with Montelena's claim to fame, check out the 2008 movie ("Bottle Shock") which it inspired.
After the tour, Yelpers adjourned to a private living room for tastes of Montelena's finest wines (including their 2006 Estate Cabernet) paired with delicious canapés from the winery’s kitchen (special shout-out to Chef Stef!). At the end of the 2-hour excursion, guests were given a take-home goodie bag from the winery (a wonderful souvenir for a memorable day).
Thanks to our generous host:
