Robert Mondavi Winery - Napa Valley, Ca.
Born in 1913, after graduating from Stanford University, Robert Mondavi worked in various Californian wineries before the 53-year-old Mondavi founded his own Robert Mondavi Winery in 1966 to prepare authentic USA wines from California, and Mondavi is now regarded as one of the leading lights in the world of wine.
At that time, the enormous wine-growing potential of California was still largely unknown. Robert Mondavi raised this treasure to present the diversity of Californian vineyards and the special microclimate to the world. He was particularly fond of the Napa Valley, where he built the Robert Mondavi Winery, the first new Napa Valley winery since the end of the prohibition period. Experienced and innovative at the same time, he uses since then the excellently tested techniques of the great chateaus in France and Italy, which he combines with his own typical handwriting. Today, the wines are a guarantee of consistently high quality.
