Generations is a Bordeaux-style blend created to honor our family’s past, present and future. The fruit is night-picked from our estate vineyards in Yountville and aged in new French oak barrels. Aromas of black cherry, coffee bean and blueberry segue to a full-bodied wine with a long finish of ripe berry and toasty creme brulee.

ABOUT THE WINERY


While known in his time as a pioneering visionary, it is doubtful that even Charles Krug could have foreseen how the humble winery he founded in 1861 would forever alter the American wine landscape. The ambitious Prussian immigrant transformed 540 acres of prime Napa Valley land that came to him through marriage to Carolina Bale, into the valley’s very first winery. Years later, another immigrant family ̶̶ the Mondavis from Italy ̶̶ would begin their own chapter at Charles Krug, rising to become the “first family” of American wine.

In 1943, Cesare & Rosa Mondavi, purchase the iconic Charles Krug and build upon the winery’s reputation for innovation and uncompromising quality. The Mondavi Family have now been stewards of this great estate for over 75 years and four generations.
