Raise Your Glass in Memory of Robert Mondavi (June 18, 1913 – May 16, 2008)
Posted by jhochstat on May 17, 2008
Yesterday the wine world lost one of its true pioneers and the first American wine maker to create a French-American wine partnership with the development and release of Opus One with Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1979.
We are all better for your contributions to the wine world both as a wine maker and as an ambassador for American wine around the world.
Rest in Peace Robert, we are all raising our glasses in your memory today
and for many days, months and years to come
