Today I received the sad news that Mr. Peter Mondavi Sr. has passed away.
He represented one of the latest great family winery owners in Napa Valley. He was the founder and owner of Charles Krug Winery and I remember him as a wonderful person, charismatic and dedicated to the hard work.
I had the possibility to photograph him at his winery two years ago. He was wearing his favorite blue shirt and proudly posed for me.
Thank you Mr. Mondavi, you will be really missed. R.I.P.
