Opus One is a winery in Oakville, CA founded as a joint “NapaMedoc” venture between legendary winemakers Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi in 1979, although the name didn’t become official until 1982. The first few vintages, beginning in 1979, instantly created a luxury brand fetching prices upwards of $50, then considered the height of indulgence. They were produced by Mouton Rothschild winemaker Lucien Sionneau and Robert Mondavi’s son, Timothy. Opus One boosted the then fledgling Napa industry, adding a certain air of pedigree to the region. 
 
The wines are now under the direction of Michael Silacci, produced as a Meritage blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec. This “cult” wine is now in constant demand the world over, from American steak houses to private Japanese cellars.

  • I had a lovely visit to the Napa, Sonoma and Russian River wineries with a friend from Paris some years ago and we tried and bought the dreg Opus one $21 and found it to be really good. You could only buy a bottle per person. I find that snobbery and overpricing does not a great wine make. I agree that a trip to California's wineries is a tr...
