RIP Robert Mondavi


The first wine I ever drank (legally) and enjoyed was Robert Mondavi Californian Merlot. It was at Earls Dalhousie in Calgary, AB. I was 18, she was 20. Good date – amazing wine.

He died today. This man put Californian Wine on the map, made it recognized world wide and made his name a brand with more power and consumer recognition than the entire Californian Wine Industry.
