In 1965, after a notorious family feud, Robert Mondavi-then fifty-two years old-was thrown out of his family's winery. Far from defeated, Mondavi was dedicated to a vision of creating a superior wine. What has happened since that fateful day is one of the greatest success stories of American business. Today, the Robert Mondavi Winery is one of the most respected in the world, and Mondavi is the man who is most responsible for the worldwide recognition of American wine making, as well as changing America's palate for fine wine and fine food. In Harvests of Joy, Mondavi shares how, through his passion for excellence, he achieved this extraordinary position, one he reached not without pain and sacrifice. With invaluable insider tips on his approach to both wine making and to running a business, Mondavi's inspirational story is "a grand example of the fact that in America you can pretty much be, do, or accomplish, whatever you set out to."

This book and the story it tells has really put a smile on my face! At a time when more people than ever seem to be so unhappy with their work and lives, how refreshing to hear of the mondavi struggle and success which has been built with such passion and belief. More than just helping to explain about wine and the processes involved in making it and enjoying it, it's nice to read of the lessons learned along the way and how these affected the personal and professional lives of everyone involved. Very feel good and inspirational, and incredibly easy to read, thank you!
