Robert Mondavi Woodbridge Pinot Grigio
|Region||California, United States|
|Brand||Robert Mondavi Winery|
The 2013 growing season’s mild temperatures and lack of major inclement weather led to a nicely-paced and well-timed harvest. With only a single heat-wave, the grapes for our 2013 Pinot Grigio were picked right on schedule, allowing for a crisp and mouthwatering finish to the wine.
The grapes for our Pinot Grigio are harvested from specially selected vineyards in the Central Valley. The warm days paired with cool nights lend these grapes their bright, acidic, and flavorful notes.
The grapes were gently pressed after harvest, preserving the purity of the juice, and then cold-fermented with an aroma-enhancing yeast strain. To retain the wine’s fresh, crisp character, it did not undergo oak aging. Small amounts of other aromatic white varieties were blended in to further enhance the wine’s fragrant aromas.

Robert Mondavi established his namesake winery in 1966 with a vision to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world’s finest. He chose To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for Robert Mondavi Winery. This first-growth vineyard, located in Oakville, California, is renowned for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world, as well as for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from which Mr. Mondavi crafted his signature wine, Fumé Blanc.
Along with To Kalon Vineyard, Robert Mondavi Winery sources grapes from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards, including Stag’s Leap (Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc) and Carneros (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay).
Mr. Mondavi believed that wines should reflect their origins, that they are the product of the soil, the climate, and the careful stewardship of those precious resources. He also believed in combining the newest techniques and technology with time-honored winemaking traditions.
