Robert Mondavi, Wine Magnate, Dies at 94

16 May

The New York Times reports that Robert Mondavi, that titan of wine, died this morning.  He was 94.

Robert Mondavi is best known for his eponymous label, though he is also behind Woodbridge, a line of budget California wines, and Opus One, a selection of ultra-premium cabernet sauvignon.

He was a champion of California as a wine-growing region, specifically one that could rival France and the rest of Europe in terms of quality.
