Words of Wisdom from Robert G. Mondavi

Robert Mondavi is one of the most influential wine makers of this past century. He took the industry in California and revolutionized it. He is probably one of the single figures that have had the most influence on the U.S.’s increase in wine production and an increase in the level of quality of our wines. To him we owe a huge debt. To honor him, I would like to put up a few quotes from Robert Mondavi that seem to make my day a little bit better when I read them.

“To succeed and have a happy life, you need common sense, a commitment to hard work
and the courage to go your own way. Interest is not enough – you must be passionate about
what you do. Find a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

“Making good wine is a skill, fine wine an art.”

“Establish a goal just beyond what you think you can do. When you achieve that,
establish another and another. This will teach you to embrace risk.”

“Drink what you like, and like what you drink.”

“Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity
of spirit.”

“People don’t believe you anyway—why bother lying?”

“Out of all the rigidities and mistakes of my past, I’ve learned a lesson that I’d like to
see engraved on the desk of every business leader, teacher, and parent in America:
The greatest leaders don’t rule. They inspire.”

Just a few quotes to give you piece of mind and a mind full of peace.
