From Carlo and Dante Mondavi-
We are excited to announce the launch of the Continuum Grand Cru-zer, a wine tasting salon on wheels!! Beginning today, March 23rd, we are embarking on a wine tour as we hit the road for the release of the 2007 Continuum. Traveling and personally sharing the Continuum Estate story with each new release is paramount to building a great wine. We have been extremely fortunate to sell out of our previous vintages, yet experience has taught us that nothing takes the place of going into the market to share the wine and the story in person. Wine is, and always will be, such a personal experience, from the growing of it to the glass. Rather than quickly flying in and out of markets, the Continuum Grand Cru-zer allows us to stay longer and get to know the places and people where Continuum is celebrated.
Our vineyards, with their fabulous western exposure, grow in exceptionally rocky soil in one of the most truly beautiful sites in the Napa Valley. And the wine from this site is sensational! Our hope is that with this Continuum Grand Cru-zer we will be able to invite people into the Continuum experience, to taste this dynamite wine for themselves, and better understand the depth of our commitment to everything we’re building on Pritchard Hill.
We cannot tell you how many times we’ve heard stories of how our grandfather touched people. He was integral in building an incredible reputation for Napa Valley by creating wines to be proud of, but also- importantly- by sharing his passion for wine, food and the arts with others. With Continuum we are building on this great foundation and realizing our father’s vision; to create a single wine from a single great estate to be recognized among the finest in the world. The Continuum Grand Cru-zer, is our latest effort- with a twist- to visit people and invite them to join with us and experience for a moment the 2007 Continuum.
The Continuum Grand Cru-zer is actually the Damon Avanti 2806 R/V- the most fuel efficient, clean diesel, Class A motor home on the road today. Our thanks to the team at Damon and Avanti RV’s, for creating such a luxury coach to realize our dream. People may not expect this level of luxury in a recreational vehicle, but set one foot in the Continuum Grand Cru-zer, and you’ll see why we are able to bring a little bit of the Continuum experience on the road like this. www.damonrv.com
Carlo’s recent engagement to Megan Bopes partially inspired the Continuum Grand Cru-zer, as his fiancée’s parents spent many happy days traveling around in their own r/v.
