In the future, ALL OF OUR WINE will be produced by either Constellation or Gallo.

90% of the wine that I buy is owned by neither of "the big two," although I do enjoy Louis M. Martini and Rancho Zabaco (both Gallo).

Robert Mondavi is largely responsible, btw, for turning Napa from a ho hum agricultural valley into a spot for the rich and famous.

What a damned shame. To be old and dieing and know that your dream, your legacy, will not live on.

When he created his winery in 1966, there were 25 wineries in the valley, none making wines of exceptional quality.

None? I recall the 1957 Beaulieu Vinyards' Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon as being as being exceptional, even bought a case.
