I remember the Chateau Montelena of the 1970s, when the wines were the best part. Not so on our recent visit. The fantastic old building is worth the trip, but skip the tour, which was conducted by a guy who obviously knew a lot about winemaking, but was very bad at explaining it. And the wines are not good. I know, it's hard to believe, but we both felt we didn't even want any for free, and some of them are $150. For good wine I recommend Stags Leap Wine Cellars or Silver Oak instead, but you can always just go to Montelena and take your picture in front of the iconic facade.
