BBC radio tribute to Robert Mondavi

Although it is very sad that Robert Mondavi is no longer with us, as reported here, it has been some consolation to see how widely his achievements have been celebrated in the press.

Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of recording a radio appreciation of him for the BBC's popular obituary programme The Last Word with Harvey Posert, the Mondavi family's long-serving friend and public relations advisor.

I'm told this will be the lead item on the programme, which will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 at 4pm today, Friday, and will be repeated at 8.30pm on Sunday.

If you miss the first airing, you can hear it using the Listen Again option here.
