Wine Maker Interview | Peter Mondavi
Last month I had the chance to sit down and interview wine maker, Peter Mondavi. Yes, Peter Mondavi, nephew of Robert Mondavi, son of Peter Sr. Mondavi and owner of the Charles Krug Winery in Napa. He brought with him the latest offerings from the Charles Krug Winery and we sampled them over dinner at the Phoenix City Grille, in Phoenix Arizona. After dinner, and a wide ranging conversation I conducted an interview based on some of the topics we had talked about. I’ve broken the interview down into three smaller parts for youtube consumption. I will provide wine reviews on the wines we tasted in some upcoming posts.
