    Very nice tribute. There are very few wineries that can associated with a single person nowadays and not a corporation. We need more Robert Mondavi’s.

    Dude, I really dug this show. It was a fitting tribute, entertaining, plus I really felt like I learned something.

    I think my fav episodes of WLTV have been then ones where I both learned something and was entertained.

    Good show Gary, 94 years old is justification enough for a tribute, but coupled with someone who is a household name across the world the it was deserved. Not sure I’ll trust your palate this time on that 100 pointer though!

    Welcome back….

    Recently stopped by the Mondavi estate in Napa for some tasting. While overly commercialized, the history of the man/brand is staggering. He’ll be missed.
