Arguably the benchmark in charitable wine auctions, the Auction Napa Valley is held annually in (where else?) Napa Valley. Established by a group of Napa Valley vintners in 1981, ANV has given over $70 million dollars over its 28 years for healthcare, youth service and low-income housing charities in Napa County.

Join us as we talk with vintners and attendees and they share their fond recollections about the iconic Robert Mondavi, and his innumerable contributions to wine and to the Napa Valley.

    That’s pretty interesting footage! It’s cool to get primary sources about him that aren’t entirely condescending. Reminds me that iconic people are still people who walk around and interact with the real world.

    Also, it’s priceless that somebody at the CIA is crediting Mondavi with realizing that food and wine go well together. 😀 He also invented the Internet.
