Four generations of the Mondavi family have grown and produced wines among the world’s finest. Cesare Mondavi was the first to bring wine to the table but it was his son Robert’s passion for excellence, which inspired both his family and the world. Tim and Marcia Mondavi, along with their children, maintain this continuum of excellence, innovation and tradition at their estate, high on Pritchard Hill.
Continuum is an opportunity for the Mondavi family to realize our ongoing passion for excellence in winegrowing by creating a singular wine recognized among the finest in the world. Continuum truly is the culmination of our family’s four generations in wine and Tim’s four decades as a winegrower. Tim's been very fortunate to work in some of the best wine regions and vineyard sites around the globe. We know that this property is a great estate. Our quest is to realize this potential and to create a new First Growth.
‘The success of Continuum, a wine from Pritchard Hill made by Tim Mondavi and his sister Marcia, continues unabated… (the 2013 vintage) is a tour de force– a masterpiece of power and finesse’
Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate (issue 228)
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 & oenology 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.
