Wines presented by Jennifer Horner of Folio Fine Wine Partners
Don’t miss the very special tasting with Folio Fine Wine Partners, owned by the Mondavi family…where wine has been “in the family” for 4 generations. Cesare Mondavi, an Italian immigrant, established a grape growing business in Lodi, California during Prohibition. His son, the famed Robert Mondavi, later started his own winery with Michael, his eldest son. Michael Mondavi's belief was that the best wines in the world would be made by wineries that were family-owned and family-managed. And thus Folio Fine Wine Partners was born! The tradition continues as “Rob,” son of Michael, is now involved in the family business as well. Come learn the history and taste the incredible wines from a family that’s serious about winemaking! Robert Mondavi and family helped establish California as the premier winegrowing region it is today!
