House of the Day: Bid on Robert Mondavi's Napa Estate
Sited on a hill overlooking Napa Valley, this 56-acre estate offers jaw-dropping 360-degree views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains as well as San Francisco Bay. Owned by winemaker Robert Mondavi, the home, which was formerly listed at $25 million, will hit the auction block Nov. 16. with a reserve price of $13.9 million (the minimum bid that the seller will accept).
