Join us as Peter Mondavi Jr. tastes us through the following wines:

• 2013 Limited Release Estate Sauvignon Blanc
• 2011 Napa Valley Merlot
• 2011 Family Reserve ‘Generations’
• 2011 Family Reserve ‘Howell Mountain’ Cabernet Sauvignon

The red releases in this lineup signify a special milestone for the winery, as 2011 marked Charles Krug's 150th vintage as well as the inaugural vintage of their Family Reserve 'Howell Mountain' Cabernet. It was an appropriate harvest for such an occasion, as 2011 yielded wines that perfectly reflect the winery's elegant old-world style. And as the oldest winery in Napa (with perhaps the world's oldest vintner - Peter Mondavi Sr. turns 100 this year!) Charles Krug continues to distinguish itself as a Valley institution.

The Charles Krug Winery, Napa Valley's oldest winery, was established by Prussian immigrant Charles Krug in 1861. In 1943, Italian immigrants Cesare and Rosa Mondavi purchased the historic property, which remains a family-owned winery producing estate-driven Napa Valley wines. Built on a foundation of family values, hard work and European winemaking tradition, the winery offers a portfolio of Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-styled wines. The winery is under the direction of Peter Mondavi Jr., who along with his brother Marc Mondavi, stewards the family business passed to them by their father, legendary Napa Valley wine icon Peter Mondavi Sr., who continues to serve as President and CEO. The family is now proudly welcoming members of the fourth generation to the business, continuing a legacy started almost 70 years ago and setting a foundation for generations to come.

• 2013 Limited Release Estate Sauvignon Blanc
