The Robert G. Mondavi Papers (1925-2008) document Robert Mondavi's work as a spokesman for wine and winemaking in the late twentieth century. Mondavi was highly influential in redefining the place of wine in American food culture and promoting California wines throughout the world. The collection includes extensive correspondence from winemakers, family members, employees of the Robert Mondavi Winery, and contacts worldwide. The papers also include biographical material, speeches and travel files, and information on COPIA: The American Center for Wine, Food, and the Arts.

The Robert G. Mondavi Papers were donated to the University of California, Davis in 2011 by The Robert G. Mondavi Trust. Cataloging and preservation work on the Robert Mondavi Papers was funded by generous donations from the Robert Mondavi Trust, Margrit Mondavi, and supporting friends, 2011.
