Light of the Vine
Light of the Vine" is a painting by Chiara Mondavi, Tim's daughter, which she produced for Continuum. Feeling a deep affinity for the energy and expression from the vineyards, she turned to the vine as an expression of life, for inspiration with the Continuum label.
The painting is a shadow painting of an old Cabernet Franc vine, planted by her father Tim 25 years previously, whose silhouette she captured on canvas at sunset. The original, standing 12 feet wide and 6 feet tall, depicts the vine true to its size in life. Chiara Mondavi, a graduate from the California College of Arts, has worked in various aspects of the family wine business, especially in the vineyards. Chiara graduated with an associate’s degree in Viticulture and Enology in 2012.
