Join the Galleria wine team in hosting Carlo Mondavi, one of Sonoma's most talented farmers and winemakers and the current generation of the most legendary wine family in California. Carlo has continued in the spirit of his father, Tim Mondavi, and his grandfather, Robert Mondavi, and founded RAEN with his brother Dante to express the beauty of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the western edges of the Sonoma Coast.

In addition to RAEN, Carlo will be showing vintages of his Napa winery, Continuum, which he shares with his father and other siblings and focuses entirely on estate Cabernet Sauvignon. In order to demonstrate the world-class quality of these wines, guests will be tasting them blind against examples from Burgundy and Bordeaux. You will not want to miss this showcase of California's new generation.
