Robert Mondavi Winery


Robert Mondavi final_sI had the pleasure of working in the cellar at Robert Mondavi’s Winery back in 1990. At the time, I had just moved to California and a friend of mine Archi, introduced me to Dave the Cellarmaster at Mondavi. After a short conversation, I was hired on the spot. Maybe he liked the fact that I had ambitions to be an artist, I don’t know, but I got the job. I found working the harvest so thrilling, I almost didn’t finish school. But I knew returning to college was the right thing to do and if I still wanted to work in the wine industry, it would be there when I got through. Today I’m glad I finished school because now I get to enjoy both painting wineries and drinking their wine!

  2. You’re welcome Suzy and I’m glad to hear this sketch brought back pleasant memories. This watercolor will be apart of my forthcoming book”Impressions of wine country” that I hope to have done in Feb. 2014. Cheers!

  3. Wonderful sketch! I’m very much looking forward to your new book. Can I pre-order it through amazon?

  4. Thank you Cathy! I’m hoping when it gets closer to the release date that there will be a pre-order option. We’ll see! Feb. 2014 isn’t far off and I have so much work still left to do. But I’m loving working on it everyday!
