Calistoga, Calif.—Matthew Crafton is the new winemaker at Chateau Montelena Winery. Crafton, a native of Virginia, joined the winery in 2008 as assistant winemaker and took the lead on the Chardonnay program. “After working alongside and observing Matt’s performance through six vintages, including the high workload in 2010 and 2011, we are very confident he will excel in his new position as Montelena’s winemaker — after all, he’s Montelena trained,” the winery’s chief executive officer Bo Barrett said in a statement announcing Crafton’s promotion.
