CK Mondavi and Family Big Bottles Bring Big Holiday Cheer

Posted on November 19, 2019

Napa, Calif.—When it’s time to raise a glass with a crowd, a magnum of wine is a festive choice that’s perfect for the holidays. The oversize bottles immediately suggest a jovial atmosphere, and CK Mondavi and Family delivers with seven varietal options, including perennial favorites Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, to keep the season merry.

“Big celebrations are a tradition for us, going back to when my grandmother would host the whole family and our winery community for holiday meals,” said Marc Mondavi, third generation proprietor, CK Mondavi and Family. “There’s something about a magnum that just sets the tone of a celebration, sharing a spirit of abundance and generosity,” added Riana Mondavi, a fourth generation Mondavi.

These larger bottles aren’t just for show – double the size of a standard 750ml, they’re ideal for entertaining. A magnum contains roughly 10 glasses of wine, making them a practical yet jolly choice for parties. With quality that overdelivers for the price point, CK Mondavi and Family’s ongoing popularity is also a testimony to the consistent value of the delicious, approachable wines.

“For nearly 75 years, CK Mondavi wines have been a staple on holiday tables for families across the country,” said Pam Novak, Director of Marketing, Lifestyle Brands, C. Mondavi & Family. “With so many opportunities to gather with loved ones over the coming months, it’s a great time to choose 1.5L wines.”

The CK Mondavi and Family collection includes magnums of Moscato, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Red Blend. The 1.5L wines are sold nationwide at a suggested retail price of $13.99. Also available through the holidays is the limited, seasonal selection, Sunset Sweet Red Blend, offered in a standard 750ml bottle for $6.99.
