Mondavi Honored Posthumously By American Wine Society

By January 21, 2017Top News, VIPs

Peter Mondavi, Sr., patriarch of Charles Krug Winery, posthumously earned an Award of Merit during the American Wine Society’s annual conference in December. The decision to recognize Mondavi was made in late 2015, prior to his death in February 2016 at age 101. The American Wine Society bestows the Award of Merit to professionals in the wine industry to recognize a “substantial and meritorious contribution in viticulture, enology, education and journalism.” Peter Mondavi, Jr. accepted the award on his father’s behalf. “Dad would have been thrilled and humbled by the AWS’s recognition of his lifelong accomplishments through this Award of Merit,” said Mondavi.
