Winemaking legend Robert Mondavi would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year, and in his honour, a number of events will take place in Napa Valley. The fêtes, complete with what Mondavi loved most (art, wine, and food), begin on June 18, what would have been his centenary day, with a public toast to his legacy on the Robert Mondavi Winery lawn. Then, at the end of June, the winery’s annual Summer Concert Series begins, headlined by country singer Martina McBride. In commemoration, the winery has chosen renowned furniture maker Frank Pollaro to design a limited-edition Centenary Table, five of which will be available to those looking to dine, and wine, Mondavi style.
