This was the first tour we took on our recent trip to Napa. We did the first tour of the day at 10am. It's never too early to drink wine, right??

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about wine and wine making in general as well as the history and business of the Mondavi vineyard. She gave us a great foundation on how wine made its way out to Napa and what Mondavi's part in it was.

We had a great little tour of the vines where we learned more about what it was like to grow wine before heading into the fermentation room. It was really impressive to see the 50,000 gallon tanks that usually hold their reserve lines. The barrel room was even more impressive.

The tasting was yummy as usual. We were guided right into the gift shop on the way out so we could buy some of the wine we were tasting, though I appreciated having a discount on the wine since we had taken the tour.

Though it was the 4pm tour, our guide/host was as passionate about Mondavi wine and the winery as if he was giving the tour for the first time. The short walk to the vineyard provided a real hands one lesson into what goes into making fine wines. The tasting room for our group of ten was as if it was built just for us - personal and tasteful! Our guide/host taught us how to properly taste and consider all the various factors that go into fine wine. A great tour!!

We took the longer informational tour and loved it. It gives a great background of the whole CA wine country region. Our group was around 8 people. It was a very comprehensive tour that took us through Robert Mondavi's history, the vineyards, the barrels and winemaking processes, then finally to the tasting. We tasted some wonderful reserve wines that I feel a lot of people do not know about. I highly recommend it!! Weather was fantastic and our guide was 5 star and very witty. A must do, preferably your first stop (like it was ours) for first timers to the region.

We are members of Robert Mondavi and have quite the collection. Every time we visit the vineyard, we are always greeted with a smile and the staff is wonderful. Not to mention the selection of wines. Mondavi has been a favorite of mine for over 15 years!

We took the longer tour and were very glad we did. The information was interesting but not overwhelming. The lessons on wine making and tasting were excellent. And we had fabulous weather too...
