Join us to learn the winery’s rich history of hosting celebrity guests, memorable events and producing world class wines. The Historical Narrative will be hosted by our own Historian and Tasting Room Manager, Jesse “The Mayor” Montenegro.

In cases of inclement weather or private events on property, the historical narrative will be hosted in The Wine Tasting Room.
Our founder, Paul Masson purchased the mountain top estate in 1901 and later earned himself the title, “The Champagne King of California”. Masson was a fabulous entertainer who was credited for introducing California wine to the world. Attend a tour to learn about the influential friends who visited the property frequently to relax, drink fabulous wine and fine food, and seek inspiration from the beautiful estate.
