  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.

Pretty aromatic are a touch toasty with nice almond shell tones backing up apple blossom, lime, pear, and a touch musky papaya fruit. This is lean on entry with snappy acids that overpower the mid-palate just a touch. There are nice notes of crisp apple and again slightly exotic musky papaya fruit on the mid-palate with a touch of bitter minerality on the backend that become more aggressive and chemical like on the finish. This is a lean, style of Pinot Grigio where the acid is a bit too prominent. 83pts

Very nice Central Coast pinot grigio. Light, crisp, airy with lemon peel, ripe peach and touch of grapefruit. Good mid-week drinker, especially for the price.

Passable pinot for the price range. Typical and uninteresting. Too Bright.

Fairly light Pinot without much body. Some bright red fruit, cherry, strawberries, and a bit of acidity.

Nice easy drinking chardonnay. Not too complex, some oak, some butter, decent acidity with white peach, lemon zest and a hint of apricot. Very good quality to price ratio.

Lots of juicy fruit flavors with a nice hint of spice. The nose had hints of apple and pineapple which carried over to the taste. in addition there were hints of pear, lemon, lychee, and a nice spicy finish that reminded me of cinnamon and cloves. Will be buying more of this one

The nose reveals ripe apple, melon, citrus and tropical fruit aromas enriched by creamy malolactic tones, spicy French oak nuances and enticing baked bread scents. On the mouthfilling, creamy palate, rich tropical fruit flavors buttressed by toasty oak tones create a lush impression, which is balanced by a long, crisp finish imbued with the refreshing minerality typical of Central Coast Chardonnay.

Robert Mondavi created the first fume Blanc in 1966 - a crisp, barrel-aged, wine that captured the vivid character of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Our Fume Blanc exhibits bright citrus, melon, floral and mineral character from Napa Valley vineyards and a silky texture from sur lie barrel aging.

The wine displays aromas and flavors of creamy pear, green apple, melon and citrus fruit, mingled with notes of subtle toast, butter and yeast from malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging. The vivid fruit characters and hints of zesty, clove-like spice lead to a crisp, refreshing finish. Enjoy this delightful Chardonnay with crab cakes, simply prepared fish and poultry, and a wide variety of cheeses, including Brie and Camembert. 99% Chardonnay, 1% aromatic white varieties.

Soft and friendly, the '05 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay is a solid example of great value wine; serve with light seafood entrees.

Fresh, mouth-watering flavors of white peach and kumquats ensconced in creamy texture. Vibrant and expressive, with a beautiful balance of weight and zesty acidity, this elegant wine closes with a long, memorable finish.
