Tim Mondavi -
Tim Mondavi is the winegrower, visionary and creative force behind all aspects of Continuum Estate. He has devoted his life's work and passion to enhancing the art of wine. In 1974, armed with a degree from UC Davis in viticulture & enology Tim joined the winemaking team at Robert Mondavi Winery. It was there Tim guided wine research programs, led the development of Napa's Appellation system and mentored many wine makers over the years. His first-hand experience in winegrowing extends to Italy, Chile, Australia and France where Tim developed, or was an integral part of, a number of luxury wines including Opus One in Napa, Ornellaia and Luce in Italy, and Sena in Chile.
Dante Mondavi -
Dante Mondavi, born and raised in Napa Valley, learned about wine from early on following in his father, grandfather and sibling's footsteps. From sorting fruit at Robert Mondavi Winery to rolling barrels at Opus One, to gathering pressure bomb samples in To-Kalon, Oakville and Stags Leap, he has learned on the job. Dante joined the Continuum team to assist his father in the winery for the first vintages and served as cellar master from 2005-2010. In 2011 Dante became Director of East Coast sales in both the U.S. and Canada for Continuum. In 2013 Dante and his brother Carlo founded their own winery, RAEN, to produce Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast.
