Owner description: A recommended winery in Napa Valley that offers educational tours and music concerts at select times.
Reviewed 12 April 2012

I highly recommend you do not waste your time or money here -- particularly avoid the higher cost tours. Our guide talked about everything (but wine), and the food and wine pairing was a joke. A small slice of tasteless flat bread.

This might have been cool when Mondavi was alive and before Constellation Brands took ownership -- go instead to Phelps, Rombauer, Chateau St. Jean -- anywhere else.

Unless you think a tour of the Budweiser of wines is good.

We really went to Napa to learn more about the valley and what made it unique (only 4% of the California wine comes from here). This is the place to go as Robert (originally from Minnesota) was an early pioneer. The vast amount of barreled wine is indeed impressive. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and the grounds are a treat to walk. Make sure you stop and wander the gift shop for some interesting knickknacks. Wine club is pretty reasonable too.

Not a warm welcome you get at the smaller wineries, but they have a movie set lay out.
Mondavi wine is world famous so this is a must see winery.
Just realize they are a HUGE corporation now so expect to be on your own.

My wife and I did a few tours and visited several more wineries and like this tour the best. The $25 is well worth it for the 75 min tour. The guide was great and you get to see everything from the vine to the wine! If you have to pick one of the large wineries to tour, pick this one!

This winery is very pretty. The grounds are beautiful and lost of places o sit and enjoy your wine, however the quality of the wine is more for the novice, but very friendly staff.
