In Harvests of Joy, Mondavi shares how, through his passion for excellence, he achieved this extraordinary position, one he reached not without pain and sacrifice. With invaluable insider tips on his approach to both wine making and to running a business, Mondavi's inspirational story is "a grand example of the fact that in America you can pretty much be, do, or accomplish, whatever you set out to" (Ventura County Star). "No one has been more closely associated with the California wine revolution than Robert Mondavi. Probably because he started it" (The New York Times).
