The Robert Mondavi Winery was one of the first in the Napa Valley to welcome visitors for tours, events, concerts and tastings.
The tour costs $25 per person and lasts approximately 75 minutes. It provides an in-depth winery tour, which follows the path of the grape from the vineyard to the cellar to the finished wine.
Guests walk into the To Kalon Vineyard, visit the winemaking cellars (including fermentation and barrel aging) and receive a seated educational tasting of three wines with one of the wine education specialists.
On this tour, Doug Frost – who is Master Sommelier and Master of Wine at the winery – took the tour and his enthusiasm for wine shows throughout the tour!
