We got an email today from Charles Krug Winery, who recently celebrated its 150th anniversary. They sent us a video of Peter Mondavi Sr. of Charles Krug Winery, who’s 97 years old and still comes into work most every day!
At 97+, Mr. Mondavi still cares deeply about making high quality, balanced Napa Valley wines at a very good price.
And he has more work to do! He’s working with his architects on remodeling Charles Krug’s 1872 Redwood Cellar, Napa Valley’s oldest winery building, which will soon house a new hospitality center. He speaks passionately and daily about getting that project completed.
Not only is Mr. Mondavi seriously invested in the remodeling project, he’s in training. Check out the video—he credits the serious twinkle in his blue eyes to a glass of red wine daily, and to this workout.
Almost 70 years later, Peter Mondavi Sr. is not going to rest on his laurels. He’s got meetings with those architects to attend to!
