Raise a glass today to the late wine great wine entreprenuer Robert Mondavi. Today is his birthday.
If you’re lucky enough to be in Napa at the legendary winery that bears his name, you’d be raising a glass in his honor this afternoon. His wife Margrit will be at the winery to toast her husband with a glass of Fume Blanc.
As you might know Mondavi originated the name Fumé Blanc to market his winery’s sauvignon blanc – the name caught on and the wine has been a huge success ever since. Have a glass, and you’ll see why.
If you’ve never visited this beautiful winery, the next time you’re in Napa put it on your to do list. The lobby is full of historic photos and fascinating facts about the Mondavi history.
So here’s to the late Robert Mondavi…a brilliant man whose passion for wine paved the way for the incredible success of Napa and its wines.
