The first winery in the Napa Valley was founded in 1861 by Charles Krug.  Charles Krug Winery concentrates on handcrafted red Bordeaux varietals from Napa Valley appellations under the stewardship of the Peter Mondavi Family.  Peter Mondavi Jr. is the second son of Peter and Blanche Mondavi and grandson of Cesare and Rosa Mondavi, the Napa Valley pioneers who purchased the historic Charles Krug winery in 1943.  As co-proprietor with his brother Marc, he works closely with their father, Peter Sr., on issues of strategic importance, including stewardship of all the winery’s brands.
