The Fashion Inside

Robert Mondavi Wine Glasses by Waterford

3 min read

Wow. Just saying those names together in the same sentence makes me want a glass of wine. After growing up in a family immersed in grapes and wine, Robert Mondavi founded the Robert Mondavi Winery in 1966, with the intent of producing wines that would give European wines a run for their money. For a little bit of history, it was the first of the major post-prohibition wineries to open its doors in Napa Valley. If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past several decades, you know that its goal of rivaling the European wines was met and that the Mondavi name is synonymous with some really exquisite wines. There was a time in its history when the brand produced and emphasized the lesser expensive wines (Woodbridge and Coastal) that Mr. Mondavi believed cheapened the brand, but the winery continued to produce premier wines as it still does to this day. With such a rich history and passion for fine wine, it’s no wonder that the renowned Waterford crystal line decided to partner with Mondavi to create the Robert Mondavi Collection of crystal wine glasses and wine accessories.

Waterford Crystal

Established in 1783 in the Irish harbor town of Waterford, the crystal line was founded by two brothers, William and George Penrose, whose guiding principal was to “create the finest quality crystal for drinking vessels and objects of beauty for the home.” For over a couple of centuries, Waterford has been producing superior-quality crystal that has garnered them a stellar reputation for quality, beauty and craftsmanship. My first experience with the Waterford brand was as a kid of about seven or eight. A friend’s wealthy father had several pieces of it on his fireplace mantle and in his china cabinet, and my friend explained to me that it was “very fancy and expensive.” It looked so beautiful, and when she showed me how to wet my finger and run it along the rim to make it “sing,” I was hooked. She said “that’s how you tell if it’s expensive and good.” It was my goal in life to grow up and by at least one piece of Waterford–it was on my bucket list. How pleased I was when Waterford partnered with Modavi to create a signature line of their crystal…

Robert Mondavi Wine Glasses

The Mondavi Waterford collection features a glass for virtually every wine. The elegant look of the glasses reflect the classic Waterford quality, while their design has been optimized to accentuate and enhance the characteristics and experience of each particular type of wine. Bowl shape/size, lip, surface area, height–each is carefully considered when the glasses are produced, ensuring an unadulterated experience of the wine. Whether you are enjoying a glass of Robert Mondavi 2009 Chardonnay with its fruit, floral and spice notes, or a glass of Robert Mondavi 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon with its notes of dark fruits, chocolate and vanilla, rest assured, the respective Robert Mondavi glass offers a brilliantly beautiful, yet functional (and affordable!) way to enjoy it.

Types of Mondavi Wine Glasses:

Caring for Your Robert Mondavi Wine Glasses

Waterford Crystal recommends you gently wash your crystal by hand in warm, soapy water, and carefully dry them with a lint-free towel. As with all fine crystal, avoid putting excessively cold or warm liquids in the glasses.

Cheers!
