Robert Mondavi Winery has announced the opening of Arch & Tower, a new location in downtown Napa. The launch coincides with a multi-year renovation of the iconic winery on Highway 29.
Located in the historic Borreo Building, Arch & Tower brings fresh perspective to the traditional wine tasting experience. Robert Mondavi Winery’s culinary director, Jeff Mosher, collaborated with James Beard Award winner and consulting chef, Chris Shepherd, for a fresh take on the culinary aspect. “We wanted to create experiences that are unabashedly Napa, driven by fresh and local ingredients, and inspired by the wines, Robert Mondavi’s Italian heritage, and the winery’s founding era of the 1960s,” said Chef Mosher.
Guests arriving for a tasting will be led to the open-air lounge overlooking downtown Napa. The “Napa Exploration” experience includes a tasting of Robert Mondavi Winery’s Estates Collection and an array of à la carte bites created to complement the wines. Those who choose the “Taste of To Kalon” experience will enjoy wines from the To Kalon Vineyard paired with a range of light bites. The “Legend Lunch” invokes convivial connection through a leisurely meal at communal tables by the Napa River, featuring three internationally inspired, locally sourced courses paired with wines from The Estates Collection. Guests can wind down from the day or gear up for dinner at “Golden Hour,” with wines by the glass and snacks à la carte offered from 4–7 p.m.
Within Arch & Tower will also have access to the To Kalon Collective, a private tasting room celebrating To Kalon Vineyard through offerings from Schrader Cellars, Double Diamond, To Kalon Vineyard Company and Robert Mondavi Winery. With a limited number of appointments available each day, priority access will be granted to club members when reservations open on August 25.
Arch & Tower is open Wednesday through Sunday, for guests 21 years and older. Reservations for Robert Mondavi Winery at Arch & Tower are now open to the public.
