|For four generations the Mondavi family has crafted world-class wines in the Napa Valley. In 1999, Michael Mondavi, together with wife Isabel, son Rob Jr., and daughter Dina, purchased the land to plant the Animo Vineyard in Atlas Peak. Today, the family-owned Estate is comprised of two distinct Napa Valley vineyards with unique growing conditions and terroirs.
