    The wine drinkers of the world owe Mr. Mondavi a lot as he was a major reason Napa Valley is what it is today if not the the major reason.

    I have always been partial to the Mondavi winery as Robert Mondavi was born in Virginia, Minnesota which is my dad's hometown in Northern Minnesota.

    Robert, I thank you as a wine drinker and may you rest in peace.

        That makes me sad, he and Margrit were regulars at the theatre I worked at in Yountville. They were always so nice, and they were our most esteemed patrons as the executive producer of our theatre company would personally wheel Bob into the theatre.
