Rob Mondavi, Jr.

Winemaker, Emblem Wines

Winemaker, Rob Mondavi, Jr.

As a winemaker, I first consider myself as a wine drinker, asking what do I want to drink and what do my friends want to drink, and then I select the vineyards, fruit maturity and all winemaking decisions based on the desire to create mesmerizing wines for myself, friends and family.

Country born: United States

Education: A non-classic winemaking background at Santa Clara University, miscellaneous chemistry and winemaking courses, but best of all a lifetime of experience in the cellar and vineyards.

Years in the wine industry: 15-20 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
My philosophy encompasses the amazing roots my family has planted, yet roots are not enough. Finding new ways to create cutting-edge wines is key and it is important to go beyond the style of wines that my forefathers created. If not, I would be disappointed in myself for not stretching the limits, as I would not have embraced the heritage to excel that was provided by my family
