Our grapes are grown in ideal locations chosen specifically for each variety. Alexander Valley was chosen as the perfect sanctuary for our Cabernet Sauvignon, while our Chardonnay hails from the hallowed grounds of the Santa Lucia Highlands. Exceptional vineyard conditions provide us superior quality grapes from which our elegant, balanced and expressive wines are crafted.
Our winemaker and water witch Marc Mondavi begins by giving life to vineyards by using his copper divining rods to locate underground water. This water is harnessed to nourish vineyards and create ideal conditions for vines to thrive. Marc then puts on his winemaker hat to create beautiful expressions of his special vineyards.
Our wines are specifically made to highlight the beautiful fruit given to us by nature. Marc prefers to showcase the fruit of the vine, rather than the telltale signs of heavy-handed winemaking.
