Robert Mondavi Winery: An Original in Napa Valley Wines
With his belief that the Napa Valley could be the center of a gracious lifestyle embracing wine, food, and art, Robert Mondavi built the valley’s first major winery since Prohibition in 1966. Since then, Robert Mondavi Winery has welcomed hundreds of thousands of guests.
Robert Mondavi Winery was one of the first to welcome visitors for tours, events, concerts, and tastings, and today its visitor programs are world-renowned. There is a wide array of interactive ways guests can learn more about Robert Mondavi wines. The signature Tour and Tasting leads them along the path of the grape, from vineyard to cellar to bottle. The Exclusive Cellar Tasting gives wine collectors and aficionados a chance to taste limited production, Reserve, and older vintage wines with a To Kalon Circle associate. The Harvest of Joy Tour and Lunch treats guests to a tour of the winery and a three-course lunch paired with wines. The Twilight Tour takes visitors on a 90-minute sunset tour of To Kalon Cellar and barrel-aging rooms, followed by a tasting of Reserve and Spotlight wines with artisanal cheeses. And the list of opportunities goes on.
No matter how visitors choose to experience the winery and spend time on the picturesque grounds, they’re bound to appreciate the major contribution Robert Mondavi Winery has made as a leader of California’s wine industry—and that of much of the world—with innovations in natural winegrowing, winemaking, and cultural outreach.
In 1980, Robert Mondavi married Margrit Biever, who shared his keen interest in uniting wine with fine arts, music, and culinary artistry. Today, the winery’s renowned Vineyard Room is an exquisite cultural center, with visual arts exhibits, concerts, book signings, and culinary pairings on the calendar. Robert Mondavi’s vision to make the Napa Valley an international center for wine, food, and art has been realized, and it’s practiced impeccably each day at the winery that bears his name.
