Opus One Brand Research
What if Opus One launches a third product line?
In 1970, Robert Mondavi and Baron Phillippe de Rothschild first met in Hawaii at the Mauna Kea Beach hotel. They have a mindset to merge old world and new world wine style into one grand opus.
In the 1990s, Opus One became the California cult wine to be widely sold in Asia and Europe.
Following Constellation Brands' 2004 takeover of Robert Mondavi Winery, the estate of Baron Rothschild negotiated with Constellation Brands control of marketing, vineyard management, and administration of the winery.
- Now Constellation Brands own 50% of Opus One.
10 Years of Development
After 10 years of development in the winery, in 1980, Mondavi sold 35 arces from To Kalon Vineyard in the Oakville AVA to the joint venture that would serve as the backbone for the blend. The first vintage from this block was released in 1985 and soon the estate built the large limestone winery in Oakville that has become an icon of the Napa Valley.
Two Against the World
- The flagship Opus One red wine is a Cabernet-dominant Bordeaux blend, which also contains smaller quantities of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Merlot.
- Opus One’s second and only other wine, Overture, is made with the fruit that doesn’t quite make the Opus One grade. Its name is another musical reference, meaning an orchestral piece at the beginning of a composition.
