Mondavi taught us to find life in wine
Robert Mondavi was to California wine what Julia Child was to French food in the United States. He turned on generations of thirsty North Americans to the possibilities wine has to offer. And while it took a movie starring Meryl Streep to make Child a truly global name, it was Mondavi's unceasing work over the decades to foster and promote California wine, most notably at the helm of his eponymous winery, that made him known the world over.
