“Our Home Field Vineyard is our pretty lady. Pure elegance. Situated on a remote hillside, planted under two miles from the cool Pacific Ocean and perched at 1,400 feet, Home Field offers a delicate message from its beautiful raw expanse. This wine opens with sweet wild raspberry, orange pith, and rose petals. The finish is persistent and fades to notes of raspberry and dried herbs as this coastal site lingers on your pallet.” - Winemaker, Carlo Mondavi 

BACKGROUND
Brothers Carlo and Dante Mondavi honed their substantial Pinot Noir making talents during a stage in France, interning for Burgundy legends Domaine Dujac and none other than Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)*, the 'KING of Burgundy’ and the source of the most sought after (and expensive) wine in the world! Another unique insider fact is that the Mondavi's leveraged their connections to secure ultra-exclusive French oak barrels normally only available to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)!
