In 1966, he set up the now celebrated Robert Mondavi Winery in California, and single-handedly has popularized new styles of wine, such as Chenin Blanc. With Julia Child, Robert is currently Co-chairman of the American Institute of Wine and Food, which is devoted to celebrating food, wine, and the arts in American culture.
