"Going once, going twice, sold!" will be music to the ears of the late Robert Mondavi's three children on November 16 when their family's sweet Napa Valley estate hits the auction block. While the Cliff May-designed mansion was listed in May 2010 for $25 million, the bidding will begin at far less at $13.9 million.

The late Robert Mondavi together with his widow, Margit, commissioned the architect Cliff May to design the luxe mansion in 1979. The property is located at 5681 Silverado Trail, just South of Yountville and down the road from the eponymous winery.

The Napa Valley estate will hit the auction block on November 16 so prospective bidders still have a few weeks to scrounge up the extra cash. Bidding starts at $13.9 million, which is far less than the original list price of $25 million.

A look at the Mondavi kitchen that features a vaulted ceiling with skylight, hardwood floors, a connected dining room, large scale windows that look out to the picturesque Napa Valley, and a center island that's very appropriately stocked with bottles of wine.

Arguably one of the most impressive features of the home is the indoor 50 foot-long swimming pool with the retractable roof.

Another look at the classy pool house. The property also comes equipped with two tennis courts, and of course, an underground wine cellar for all the Mondavi wine.

Perhaps, the lack of buyers interested in the home in May 2010 is due to the fact that the Mondavi pad only has two bedrooms.
