Robert Mondavi dies at 94...

Wine GlassesWhile I've rarely been impressed on the occasions I've actually tasted his wines, and he's likely to be remembered most for bringing cardboard boxes and plastic bags to the industry, I have to say Robert Mondavi did more to spread the enjoyment of wine in America than just about anyone else in history.

Governor Schwarzenegger said it pretty well: "It is hard to imagine anyone having more of a lasting impact on California's $20 billion-a-year wine industry than Robert Mondavi. He was a tireless entrepreneur who transformed how the world felt about California wine, and an unforgettable personality to everyone who knew him."
