Wine is not the only thing you can find at Oakville’s Robert Mondavi Winery, but it’s definitely at the forefront of a visit to the Napa Valley gem. Boasting the name of its founder (Robert Gerald Mondavi), the winery has solidly established itself while breaking boundaries in winemaking since 1966. Reflecting California’s early beginnings with its Mission-style structure and sitting beside its own ‘To Kalon’ vineyard, Mondavi continues to combine its rich Napa Valley heritage and dedication to forward thinking in perfect harmony. A perfect blend, just like many of their wines.
That initiative to produce fantastic wines continues today through the grapes grown (now throughout the Napa region) and the bottles produced. The winery has welcomed innovation through new techniques and technology, and when it’s combined with timeless winemaking traditions, their wines speak for themselves.
As one of the very first wineries in Napa Valley to offer tastings, tours, and food and art programs, they continue to innovate when it comes to a typical winery visit. Whether you’re stopping in for one of their three different wine tasting experiences or winery tours or enjoying a concert or culinary event under the stars, hospitality and fantastic wines — from the Napa Valley’s famed cabernet sauvignon to Robert Mondavi’s renowned Fumé Blanc — are always at the core.
The team at Mondavi has a robust, well-rounded visitor program with fantastic activities available year-round, from wine tasting and wine tours to live music. A visit to the renowned winery has something for everyone, first time Napa guests and Wine Country connoisseurs alike.
Here’s your chance to look behind-the-scenes and learn more about the innovative winemaking practice at Robert Mondavi Winery. As one of the first Napa establishments to offer tours, each one of their six winery tours and tastings celebrates the ground-breaking aspects of their process through featured walks through their onsite vineyards, family-friendly and cultural discovery, and even a golden hour escapes between the vines with wine in hand. Each tour celebrates their wines but is also an adventure in itself.
Wine Tastings and Meals
No reservations are required for walk-in tastings at Mondavi. Guests can sample their hand-crafted wines within unique locations and tasting rooms around the winery, including bottles available only at this location.
And when you’re looking to partake in an elevated tasting, consider adding a pairing like their Exclusive Cellar Tasting including cheese and charcuterie, or an in-depth seating including sweet treats with their Wine and Chocolate Tasting. Both require prior reservations.
For those looking for more than small bites, plan to dine for lunch or dinner with a multi-course meal crafted by Robert Mondavi Winery’s in-house chef, Jeff Mosher. Preparing meals with ingredients from the winery’s onsite garden and from various local vendors, Jeff elevates farm-to-table fare with perfectly paired meals that complement their fine wines. From a three-course lunch to a meal dedicated to vintages over the last four decades, Robert Mondavi Winery’s food program is a fresh approach to Wine Country savoring.
Walk-ins are available for tastings at Robert Mondavi Winery, but we recommend booking a reservation to ensure a saved spot for your sips. If you plan on enjoying a tour or exploring their food programs, a reservation is a must.
