The world's wine publications are commenting on the death of American wine pioneer Robert Mondavi.
There’s an extensive, informative obit in Decanter magazine’s website, written by Linda Murphy, Healdsburg wine writer and former wine editor of The San Francisco Chronicle.
There's an even longer story in Wine Spectator's online version.
