ABOUT MONTAGU WINES
Montagu Wines is a boutique winery dedicated to showcasing wine from some of the finest vineyards in Napa Valley and Sonoma. Each wine is a true expression of the world-class terroir from which it comes. Dedicated to minimal intervention in the winery, Montagu allows each wine to naturally express its authentic and full potential.
Montagu Wines was founded by Weston Eidson in 2012 and from the beginning has been focused on extremely limited production. Learning from mentors Jason Moore and Russell Bevan, Weston is committed to producing wines that are richly layered, complex and balanced.
FROM OUR FOUNDER
Montagu Wines is a tribute to my great-grandfather John, the second Lord Montagu of Beaulieu and a British automotive pioneer responsible for much early automotive legislation. He was also the first person to drive an automobile to Parliament, gave the future Edward VII his first car ride, and whose assistant served as the model for the iconic Rolls-Royce hood ornament known as the Spirit of Ecstasy.
His son, and my great-uncle Edward, the third Lord of Montagu, continued his father’s legacy by founding Britain’s National Motor Museum and worked tirelessly to promote the heritage and preservation of British history. He was also a lover of wine and produced his own from a vineyard he planted in Southern England.
Both my great-grandfather and great-uncle led innovative and adventurous lives and it is my hope that you discover this spirit and zest for life in each bottle of Montagu Wines.
