  • Robert Mondavi Winery is the place to go for your Napa Valley wine education.

    May 31, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very informative tour of a beautiful facility.
    Cons: We didn't really dig the actual wines, but that's just personal preference.

    Summary: Situated in the peaceful countryside of Oakville, California, Robert Mondavi Winery is, for many, the holy grail of Napa Valley wineries.  Even I, a near-total wine novice, had heard of and tasted Robert Mondavi wines prior to my visit.  While ... read more

    Pros: Miles Raymond from Sideways would love it; wines are world-class.
    Cons: I did not. It's unwelcoming, and you get little for your money.

    Summary: Mondavi Winery was the low point of a trip I took to Napa a few months ago. Fortunately, it was also the first winery I visited. Coming from the south, it's the first "name" winery one is likely to encounter on the road, so it's likely to be the ... read more

    Pros: everything, winetasting, events & grounds
    Cons: not available in every state

  • La Familia a hit!!

    Apr 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, intimate, strikingly beautiful
    Cons: Because of the small size it could become crowded

    Summary: My impression of Mondavi has always been that its too big, so when I heard that they had a spin-off, I assumed that it too would be large and highly commercial. I was surprised to find La Familia a cozily small size and nestled against a hill. The ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Share lots of wine knowledge
    Cons: None!

    Pros: A personalized experience, truly educational
    Cons: Time consuming

    Pros: None
    Cons: Isn't very good, too expensive, risk crossing a picket line

    Summary: The Robert Mondavi winery in Northern California is nothing more than posh scenery. The wine is all right, but nothing better than what you would find for 6 dollars a bottle at the liquor store. When I visited there the workers were on strike, and ... read more
