Robert Mondavi, the father of California wine.
His vision of creating wines in California that rivals the world's great wines has been brought to fruition by his revolutionary spirit and respect for tradition, delivering premium wines to dining tables around the world.
Robert Mondavi, who says that "winemaking is art and culture," has continued to support cultural and artistic activities and medical activities in a variety of ways, and has been praised for his achievements and leadership. In 1996, he received the first California Fair Lifetime Achievement Award. Wine Spectator magazine's Readers' Choice Award named it America's most important winery, and the Harvard Business School Association named it Business Leader of the Year. In 1999, he received the Arts Patron Award from New York City's Songwriters Hall of Fame. Music festivals such as the "Summer Festival", an activity started by Robert Mondavi for the fusion of Napa Valley, wine, culture and art, are still very popular every year and have become a specialty of Napa Valley.
