Grab a Glass and Cheers With CK Mondavi and Family in Their Celebration of 75 Years
September 15, 2021
This year marks the 75th diamond anniversary for one of Napa Valley’s most iconic families: the CK Mondavi Family. As fourth-generation family members celebrate this iconic year, they’ve decided to celebrate in style by saying thank you to all the wine lovers who have supported them over the years. Their Diamond Sweepstakes will give seven wine lovers the chance to win gift certificates of $1,000 for use at a fine jewelry retailer.
In coordination with the Diamond Sweepstakes, sisters Riana and Angelina Mondavi will join their followers for an Instagram Live with @CKMondaviWines on October 7th at 4 p.m. PDT. In celebration of the winery’s anniversary, the sisters will cheers to their family’s 75 years with a special wine cocktail created by Derek Kwong of Barkeep SF.
The “Mondavi 75” features CK Mondavi and Family Moscato or Sauvignon Blanc and lemon and fresh mint for a refreshing seasonal drink.
The “Mondavi 75” Cocktail
Chilled bottle of CK Mondavi Moscato or Sauvignon Blanc – Limoncé Limoncello – Lindy’s Homemade Lemon Italian Ice – White Sugar Rock Candy Pop – Lemon – Fresh Spearmint
1. Peel the rind from a lemon and line the inside of your wine glass. (A “Y” shaped vegetable peeler makes it easier to peel around the circumference of the lemon). 2. Pour in 1/2 ounce of Limoncello. 3. Pour in the chilled CK Mondavi Moscato or CK Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc (5 ounces). 4. Carefully place a large scoop of Lindy’s Homemade Lemon Italian Ice into the glass. 5. Place the White Sugar Rock Candy Pop into the glass. 6. Garnish with a sprig of fresh spearmint. 7. Enjoy!
Derek will join the sisters on the live stream to teach everyone how to craft this delicious new CK Mondavi wine cocktail and share his insider tips on other tasty wine cocktails.
“Our dedication to crafting high-quality wines at an approachable price point has never wavered. While we usually enjoy our wines just as they are, trying a special new wine cocktail feels extra celebratory,” said Riana Mondavi, member of the fourth generation and Director of Chains – Western Region. “My sister and I will also be reminiscing about some of our favorite family memories and will be talking about what we envision for CK Mondavi and Family for the next 75 years.”
