Join us for another fun and delicious book club as we discuss "Joys of Harvest, How the Good Life Became Great Business."
In 1965, after a notorious family feud, Robert Mondavi, then 52 years old, was thrown out of his family's winery (Charles Krug). 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 an American Business. Today, the Mondavi winery in one of the most respected in the world, and Mondavi is the man who is most responsible for the worldwide recognition of American wine-making, as well as changing American's palate for fine wine and food. In HOJ, Mondavi shares how, through his passion for excellence, he achieved his 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 inspirational story is a "grand example of the fact that in America, you can pretty much be, do, or accomplish, whatever you set out to do".
