Robert Mondavi, Napa Pioneer Dies

Vintner Robert Mondavi Dies

Robert Mondavi, the charismatic founder of one of the world's most recognized wineries, died Friday at the age of 94. Mondavi was a tireless promoter of California wines. Photos

This man drank a bottle of wine at every lunch, and that is not an urban legend but fact. He was quite the wild man from what I have read. He had a falling out with his sons over their promotion of the lower price point wines under their family label. Whatever the issue(s), this man deserves our respect. So take your hat off and light a candle....

RIP you amazing vintner....
