Vintner Robert Mondavi Dead at 94

The name Robert Mondavi may mean inexpensive California wine to a lot of people, but the vintner, who died today at the age of 94, was responsible for making Napa Valley known internationally as a great wine-making region. He was inducted into the CIA's Vintner's Hall of Fame in 2007, an honor Mondavi's wife called a pearl in the crown of our family's winemaking history in the Napa Valley.
