In 1989, inspired by their Italian heritage, the Robert Mondavi family began experimenting with California-grown Italian varietals. The result was La Famiglia; food friendly wines with the fruit expression of California vineyards. When Robert Mondavi Winery was sold to a publicly traded wine company based in New York, we saw an opportunity to acquire the unique La Famiglia brand. We rethought the brand from the ground up and set out to craft special wines. Seeking the best possible fruit sources for the two varietals, we eventually selected several eminent Russian River vineyards in Sonoma Valley for the Pinot Grigio and Snows Lake Vineyard in the Red Hills Lake County appellation for the Barbera. These unique first-class vineyards and small lot winemaking meant lower production levels as we dramatically reduced production from 18,000 cases a year to less than 3,000 cases a year. Read less

Small bubbles in the glass with a nectar yellow color. Very sweet nose with hints of vanilla and peach. Heavy bodied with an almost syrup mouth feel. Hits you with a kick of sweetness but does not overpower the palate. Tastes of peach/apricot, vanilla, and pear with a slight champagne backing that is distinctive to Moscato. Delicious desert wine and wonderful to share with someone special.

Firm, fruity flavors. Simple yet intriguingly complex with a long, full finish and a little zingy spritz. - Winery

Robert Mondavi Moscato d'Oro Napa Valley 2009 375ML Half Bottle

Still with some spritz, this is a sweet, but not too sweet, clean and vibrant wine. with rich flavors of apricots and vanilla. The effervescence should disappear in time.

Captivating aromas of lime, mint and spring flowers, with a hint of oyster shell. Juicy and lively in the mouth, with bright grapefruit and floral flavors. Comes across as much less sweet than its 100 grams of residual sugar would suggest, thanks to bright acidity and citrus peel notes. This was served to me as partly frozen slush, which is the way Robert Mondavi enjoys this extremely refreshing wine.
