Robert Mondavi Dies at Age of 94 on May 16, 2008

“Visionary vintner helped usher in a new era for California wine,” writes Jim Laube. Continuing, “Robert Mondavi, a visionary winemaker and brilliant marketer who helped lead California wine into international prominence, died at 9 a.m. today at home in Yountville, Calif. He was 94.” Go to Wine Spectator for Jim Laube and Marvin Shanken’s stories… It’s a sad day for the wine business. I’ll be writing about the legend who made a chapter of my life so amazing, and helped my career in so many ways he didn’t even understand.
