In this autobiography of the founder of the internationally celebrated winery in Napa Valley, Robert Mondavi shares his inspirational story.
In 1965, after a notorious family feud, Robert Mondavi––then 52 years old–– was thrown out of his family's winery. Far from defeated, Mondavi was dedicated to a vision of creating a superior wine.
What has happened since that fateful day is one of the greatest success stories of American business. The Robert Mondavi Winery is respected around the world, and Mondavi is the man who is most responsible for the worldwide recognition of American winemaking, as well as changing America's palate for fine wine and fine food.
In Harvests of Joy, Mondavi shares how, through his passion for excellence, he achieved this extraordinary position, one he reached not without pain and sacrifice. With invaluable insider tips on his approach to both winemaking and to running a business, Mondavi's story is "a grand example of the fact that in America you can pretty much be, do, or accomplish whatever you set out to."
