The Charles Krug Winery, first in the Napa Valley and established in 1861, is owned and operated by the Peter Mondavi Family. Since 1943, three generations of the family have been pioneers in the Napa Valley wine industry leading to innovations such as developing cold sterile filtration and fermentation in small French oak barrels. Today, Peter Mondavi, Jr. is overseeing an ambitious investment program focused on replanting the 850 acres of land and upgrading winemaking operations to enhance their reputation as one of Napa Valley’s premier wineries.
