Harvests of Joy

A true story of midlife transformation by the Napa Valley entrepreneur who put California’s wine industry on the map. In 1965, after a notorious family feud, Robert Mondavi—then fifty-two 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. Today, the Robert Mondavi Winery is 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 America’s palate for fine wine and food. In Harvests of Joy, Mondavi shares how his passion for excellence helped him to achieve this extraordinary position, one he reached not without pain and sacrifice. With invaluable insider tips on his approach to both wine making and 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” (Ventura County Star).
