Crimson Ranch

Crimson Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Red Blend are classic California wines: big, rich and dense with fruit flavor. Drawing on their long relationships around the state, the Michael Mondavi Family works with California’s best winegrowers to source the perfect fruit for these three wines. Each would be an excellent and affordable introduction to their family of wines.

Four generations of the Mondavi family have created world-class wines in the Napa Valley. The Michael Mondavi Family, creators of the new Crimson Ranch wines, took their inspiration from families, like their own, who headed west across the country in search of opportunity. California, with its rich winemaking heritage, was their destination.

Past generations of Mondavi family, counted among the scores of dreamers who used a crimson sky as their beacon, crossing the country west to California in search of opportunity. Inspired by their pioneering spirit and the bountiful land that they worked, integral to this state’s winemaking heritage, Michael Mondavi Family made Crimson Ranch as a tribute to those who followed the sun.

Wine Maker

Four generations of passion and experience have come together to create the winery and the Mondavi wines. It started in 1919 when Michael Mondavi's grandfather, Cesare, was elected to find grapes and winemaking supplies for families to make wine legally during Prohibition. Thus, in Lodi, California, the Mondavi family began their foray into California winemaking.  Cesare's son, Robert, joined the family wine business while in high school. In 1966, Robert and his eldest son, Michael, founded the Robert Mondavi Winery, establishing themselves as innovators in winemaking, and accomplishing their goal of bringing California wines the world recognition they deserved. Michael made wines for the first eight harvests at Robert Mondavi Winery and then later took the helm of Sales and Marketing. Known as global emissaries of California wine, Robert and Michael have dedicated their lives to creating a fine wine culture in America. The Robert Mondavi Winery went public in 1994, and Michael served as President, CEO and Chairman until he left in 2004 to start his own winery.  Today, with son Rob Mondavi, Jr. at the winemaking helm, Michael and the family craft a collection of world-class wines at the Michael Mondavi Family Estate.
