A New Chapter for Robert Mondavi Winery
Arch & Tower Opens in Downtown Napa

Downtown Napa has welcomed the newest expression of the legendary Robert Mondavi Winery with the opening of Arch & Tower this past August. Since 1966, the name Robert Mondavi Winery has been synonymous with warm hospitality and innovative winemaking, producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings in the world from their internationally famous vineyard, To Kalon. Greek for “highest beauty,” To Kalon Vineyard and the wines produced from this iconic site in the Oakville district are the focus of this exciting project on 3rd Street. It’s also the new hospitality home for the next two years as the Robert Mondavi Winery property on Highway 29 is undergoing an extensive full-site renovation across all aspects of the business from winemaking and cellars to offices and hospitality venues.

“Walking through To Kalon, admiring its contours and vines, smelling the richness of its soil, I knew this was a very special place. It exuded an indefinable quality I could not describe, a feeling that was almost mystical.” – Robert Mondavi

Arch & Tower stone building

Arch & Tower is located in the beautifully renovated historic Borreo Building along the riverfront. Made of stone quarried from the Soda Canyon area, this landmark site preserves its original architectural charm as Napa’s second oldest commercial building circa 1877, perfectly uniting Napa’s rich mercantile history with Mondavi’s pioneering spirit and vision. Here, a heritage of world-class winemaking meets modern elegance in an inviting space where guests can experience hosted wine and food pairings showcasing the best of the Napa Valley wine region.
