ROBERT MONDAVI WINERY: An Ode to the First Lady of Napa Valley
The late Mrs Mondavi was a pioneering woman of the modern-day California wine industry. She joined the Robert Mondavi Winery in 1967, pursuing a life-long interest in uniting wine with fine arts, music and culinary artistry. Under her direction, the wineryy developed original cultural and culinary arts programs that are now benchmarks for the wine world. With the enthusiastic support of her late husband, Robert G. Mondavi, she created a showplace for painters, sculptors, photographers, jazz and classical musicians and the great chefs and winemakers of the world.
This Gamay Rosé was that perfect marriage of wine and art, and honors Mrs Mondavi by featuring her watercolor illustrations on the label.
