Napa Valley's first winery, established in 1861, is owned by the Peter Mondavi Sr. Family.

Quality winemaking begins in the vineyards, and the vineyards of the Charles Krug Winery are the keystone of Napa Valley's first winery. Our team, comprised of winemaker, Stacy Clark, vineyard manager Jim Barbour, renowned as one of the most respected experts in the Napa Valley, Peter Mondavi Jr. and all the dedicated people who work on our land, ensures that quality, not quantity, provides only the finest combination of elements to bring in phenomenal fruit each harvest.

With eleven vineyards and over 850 acres of prime Napa Valley land, sustainable farming practices and careful stewardship of the land, it is no wonder we are producing some of the finest wines in the Napa Valley today.

Our Napa Valley Merlot has expressive aromas of ripe red and black fruit followed by hints of spice. Supple body and medium tannins envelop flavors of berry and cherry, which linger on the palate through a long, smooth finish.
