Chateau Mouton Rothschild partnered with Robert Mondavi in 1979 to blend Opus One. The cult wine made its first appearance at the Napa Valley Wine Auction in 1981, where a single case sold for $24,000. Michael Silacci, winemaker of Opus One, carefully blended wines to replicate that historical vintage.
