Charles Krug Carneros Reserve Chardonnay 1997
Food Pairings: This elegant Chardonnay makes a fine pairing with liver veal picata with lemon and capers, or a rich broiled salmon covered in lemon-dill sauce. Appetizers of prosciutto and melon or green olive and brie cheese are also delightful.
In 1861, Charles Krug, the visionary father of Napa Valley winemaking, established the winery that started it all. In 1943, Cesare and Rosa Mondavi purchased this iconic estate and continued to build on its reputation for innovation and uncompromising quality. Their son, Peter Mondavi Sr., carried on this tradition remaining active in the winery until his passing in 2016 at the age of 101.
Today his two sons–Peter Jr. and Marc–steward the family business as co-proprietors intent on building a lasting legacy for their children and those generations still to come. 2018 marked the 75th Anniversary of four generations of Mondavi Family ownership of Charles Krug.
