After lunch in Yountville at R + D Kitchen my friend and I were looking to stop at one more winery close by. Robert Mondavi was a brand she recognized and drank often. Driving up to the winery was very grandiose. The winery has these larger-than-life statues from artist Beniamino Bufano. Let’s say there was a lot going on. It was strange the very modern art yet old Spanish style architecture however it does make an impact.
We were greeted by a man asking if we were looking to take a tour or do a tasting, we were open to either. We hopped on the next “Discovery and Tasting Tour” where you get a quick 30 minute tour of the ground while tasting two wines for $20.
The tour was quick, sweet and to the point, however I didn’t care for tour guide as she was quite snappy with the visitors. The wines were okay, I wasn’t overly excited but I only had the two lowest tiered wines. I would try the exclusive wines and I do want to try the 2013 Robert Mondavi Winery Maestro Red Blend Napa Valley.
