CK Mondavi: Intrepid Fallen Heroes #CKMondaviHeroes #CleverGirls


I am not a member of the military. I did not grow up as a military “brat.” But the men and women of our military have a special place in my heart. Supporting our troops is something that is very important to me. My great uncle earned a Silver Star as a paratrooper in World War II. I have had cousins in every branch of the military. I have dated several soldiers. Some of my closest friends are military, both active and inactive duty. I am a donating member of the USO. I spend hours watching “welcome home” videos and sobbing. I think you get it. So when an opportunity presents itself to support our military, I will most likely take it. I was excited to learn that I can support our troops just by purchasing wine!


Straight from the Napa Valley area, CK Mondavi is the only American made/grown wine in the “supermarket wine under $10” category. CK Mondavi wine is sold nationwide in every US state. It’s pretty delicious for an affordable wine. I tried the Chardonnay at Easter and drank it right up. It was unlike other Chardonnay’s I have tasted. It had a distinct oak flavor that was quite pleasant.


Established in the 1940s, CK Mondavi remains a family-owned business that has thrived for four generations to produce fine wines.
CK Mondavi is run by the legendary Napa Valley wine icon, Peter Mondavi Sr., a World War II veteran.
