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

Good wine, decent price. Now what we have here is a failure to communicate (I love that line), but what I am getting at is that this "Robert Modavi" wine is not really the Mondavi that most of us in the wine world expect. Now if you were fortunate enough to have the La Famiglia label back in 1999 - 2001 then you know what I am talking about. This Pinot Grigio is a good wine don't get me wrong, but it is no where near the previous vintages. Good luck finding this one, and if you do, it should be well under the retail price of $15 more like $10 and under category. Again good warm spring / summer wine to be enjoyed at a BBQ near you.

Wine Tasting NotesOur Pinot Grigio is Italian in style with abundant California ripe fruit expression. It has classic Italian mineral character, which I attribute to the river rock and gravel soils of the vineyards around Arroyo Seco in Monterey County. This vintage of Pinot Grigio has excellent weight and complexity on the palate, with generous fruit character apple, citrus and lemon zest woven with mineral, floral and spice nuances. The crisp, dry flavors culminate with a burst of tangerine in the finish. This wine begs to be paired with oysters or sushi.
