  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.

Bright and fresh aromas, not the most complex wine but it's crisp and has green apple and pear flavors, and a creamy finish.

Came across very light with little to no flavor or bite. Some citrus came out after letting it warm up a bit but still not much here.

Savory herbal aroma, mineral attack with mild acidity in the mid-palate.

Summer aroma with the smell of fresh peaches in a touch of honey. Citrus notes on the taste that is sweet but not overpowering. Balanced acidity with a well-rounded finish that is crisp and sweet.

Pretty honey, lemon and spice flavors form a tasty core, finishing on a tangy note.

They kept this one nice and crisp and basically dry, so itrsquo;s a fine sipper at a fair price. The juicy flavors star, with spearmint gum, pineapple, lemon and lime fruit.

You won't find a better Pinot Grigio at this price in California. It's just wonderful, with brisk acidity perking up flavors of lemons, limes, green apples and honey. Production was 111,000 cases.

This unoaked, low-alcohol Sauvignon Blanc is really elegant, and shows how you don't have to spend a lot to get a fine wine. It's dry, crisp and rich in lemon, lime, pineapple and vanilla flavors, with a savory creaminess from sur lie aging. A brilliant value; production was 77,500 cases.

A little simple in citrus flavor, but for the price, a pretty nice wine. It's the kind of crisp, dry white I've had many times at gallery openings and such, inexpensive, but with enough panache to satisfy a picky crowd.

Pale straw. Moderately light-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Dried herbs, mineral. Faintly earthy, herbal aromas. Minerally crisp character with a light mouthfeel. Very straightforward and lean.
