SUMMARYThe first Californian cult wine to be widely sold internationally, Opus One was created by the winemakers Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe Rothschild in 1979. In 1984, they bought a large part of Napa Valley’s land to plant vineyards together. Opus One Winery is located at Oakville in California’s Napa Valley wine region. It was founded in 1980 with the aim to produce excellent wines from premium grapes grown on their own estate-owned vineyard which currently covers. The partnership between Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild began when both men saw a mutual vision for producing quality Bordeaux style wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and other fine grape varieties that could be cultivated successfully in California’s climate. Their collaboration marked the first time an American winemaker would create wine using premium French grapes and techniques. Opus One Winery wines are produced from the varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grown in Oakville which yield very little fruit per acre due to their highly sought after flavour profile.
