  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.

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.

A sweet pretty wine with lip-smacking flavors of ripe, sweet oranges, apricots and cherries, with a luscious edge of smoke, vanilla and cinnamon. Tastes quite sweet, with a crisp backbone of steely acidity.

Winemaker Notes - The 2009 Moscato d Oro is a study in exotic floral aromas of pink jasmine and lemon blossoms overlapping tropical notes of guava and lychee. The palate s plush, abundant stone fruit flavors are complemented by shades of orange and spice and cleansed by a refreshing, citrusy finish. Crafted solely from Muscat Canelli grapes grown in our Wappo Hill Vineyard in Napa Valley s Stags Leap District.

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.

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

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.
