The Robert Mondavi Winery has unveiled plans for a $27 million expansion of its Napa Valley red-wine facility and visitor center. The To-Kalon Project, named for the century-old vineyard adjacent to the winery, will add a 54,000-square-foot fermentation wing and barrel room to the current winery, which was built in 1966.

The winery's visitor center will be also enlarged to accommodate a projected 300,000 visitors per year. In addition, an expanded tour, including a new demonstration vineyard, is to be offered.

San Francisco architects Backen Arrigoni & Ross will maintain the winery's original California mission style in the new wing. Construction is scheduled for completion in early 2001.
