Robert Mondavi established his namesake winery in 1966 with a vision to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world’s finest. He chose To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for Robert Mondavi Winery. This first-growth vineyard, is known for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world. As well as for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from which Mr. Mondavi crafted his signature wine, Fumé Blanc.
Mr. Mondavi believed that wines should reflect their origins. That they are the product of the soil, the climate, and the careful stewardship of those precious resources. He also believed in combining the newest techniques and technology with time-honored winemaking traditions.
Our winemaking and vineyard teams are proud to carry on our founder’s mandate. To always strive higher, to pursue Robert Mondavi’s goal of excellence with the same passion and innovative spirit. To this end, moving forward with programs that break barriers and open new frontiers.
Leading this initiative is Geneviève Janssens, Chief Winemaker. She was named Winemaker of the Year by Wine Enthusiast in 2010.
