Top Opus One wines and producer profile

Created by Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Opus One is one of the world's most coveted wines. Below you can see Decanter's expert tasting notes on this Napa Valley powerhouse, including the first ever vintage, 1979.

Opus One was conceived as the joint brainchild of Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, after they first met in Hawaii back in 1970.

Their vision was to combine their expertise in Old World and New World winemaking, to pioneer a blend that was greater than the sum of its parts.
