Tour of Robert Mondavi Winery

Robert Mondavi Winery
Matt and I had a special tour of the Robert Mondavi Winery. It's hard to describe the beauty of this place so this post will consist mostly of pictures. Robert Mondavi was a true entrepreneur. He started the winery by himself with the hopes of making Napa a place for come to learn about and enjoy wine. Over the past 50 years this dream has become a reality. He would've turned 100 this year and the winery had a big birthday party for him. If you are going to go one place in Napa, make it Robert Mondavi.

As you can tell from the photos it is an incredibly beautiful place. We ended up buying some of their Unoaked Chardonnay which we enjoyed at dinner that night.
