[STC001457] Napa Valley is undeniably one of the world’s biggest wine destinations today — it’s home to more than 300 commercial wineries — but the first to plant vines in the valley was Charles Krug in 1861. The winemaker, who was born in Germany, made the decision to establish his eponymous winery when he was in the region working as an apprentice. Later, in 1882, the winery became the first establishment in all of California to make its tasting room available to the general public. The Mondavi family purchased the winery in 1943, and since then, it has been run as a family-owned and -operated enterprise by four generations of Mondavis. The neighboring Beringer Vineyards holds the record for being Napa’s winery that has been continually functioning at the same place for the longest period of time; the first vines were planted there in 1875.
