"I am honored to be partnering with the Robert Mondavi Winery," said Groban in a statement.
"Fine wine and the arts are a natural pairing, so collaborating with the people at Mondavi to promote their wines and my upcoming album feels like an organic and inspired endeavor," Groban added.
Selling 25 million albums worldwide, Groban is the top selling classical artist of the 2000s in the US, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
He recently sang at the annual Robert Mondavi Winery Summer Concert Series in Napa Valley, Calif.
As he begins recording his upcoming album next month, he will work closely with Robert Mondavi Winery's director of winemaking, Genevieve Janssens, and winery chef Jeff Mosher for his new vintage.
