  The Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 after a family split with the Charles Krug Winery, which had been founded by Robert’s father.  After heading out on his own, Robert settled on land in Napa valley, and in particular the famed To Kalon Vineyard in the Rutherford district. The original plot in To Kalon Vineyard was only 12 acres, but today there are 450 acres under vine. The Robert Mondavi Winery also includes the Wappo Hill Vineyard, which is a 400 acre plot in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Within a year of its inception, the Robert Mondavi Winery proved to be a true pioneer, not only with the establishment of his winery but also by introducing and popularizing the use of French oak barrels for wine, European wine techniques, and the bottling of varietal wines. Robert Mondavi Winery only uses French Oak barrels for storing wine, and his influence and success led to the practice’s prevalence. Among Mondavi’s greatest successes one would have to count the creation of the Fume Blanc moniker for Sauvignon Blanc as well as the introduction of his benchmark Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet. Today Robert Mondavi’s legacy is carried on under the watchful eye of his wife who works with the current winemakers Genevieve Janssens, Gustavo Gonzalez, and Richard Arnold to ensure that today’s Robert Mondavi wines deliver the elegance, appeal, and character that Robert had intended.

1st rating in the world of wines! Too much astringency and tannis for me. Nice lemony notes, clean, but wouldn't consider re-buying.

Rich and elegant, the Woodbridge Chardonnay displays delicious ripe pear, peach, and floral notes. Nuances of apple pie with autumn spices weave through the fruity aromas and flavors, ending in a soft and silky finish. The balance of lively fruit and creamy texture makes this wine a perfect choice to sip with friends over conversation or to pair with your favorite foods. Try it with smoked salmon appetizers, grilled chicken or fish, and creamy chowders. Be creative-if you like the food pairing, it works! - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

With an aroma of green apple and a floral undertone, our Woodbridge Chardonnay displays a smooth elegance. The aromas and flavors show nuances of baked apples and cinnamon, ending in a rich oak finish.
