Raised in San Luis Obispo amidst the blossoming wine region on California’s central coast, Chelsea has covered all steps of the winemaking process over the decade she’s spent in the wine industry. After earning a B.S. degree from University of California, Davis, she set out to make wine across the wine regions of California – from producing complex Pinot Noirs of the Santa Ynez Valley to elegant Cabernets in Napa Valley, and balanced Chardonnays in the Santa Cruz mountains. For Montoya Vineyards, Chelsea’s goal is to create balanced and compelling wines for occasions small and large.
