Mondavi winery


Here is a picture of the Beniamino Bufano statue of St Francis at the entrance to Robert Mondavi winery, probably the most well known winery in the Napa Valley .Opened in 1967, it was only the third winery built in the valley after Prohibition and was the catalyst that changed the wine industry in the Napa Valley.
