Carlo Mondavi is a fourth-generation winegrower who, with his brother Dante, founded the RAEN winery in 2013. Growing up in the winemaking business, Carlo further developed his knowledge through studies at the University of Aix-en-Provence in France and in Italy. Along his learning journey, Carlo worked a harvest at Domaine Dujac in Burgundy and attributes this experience, and the friendships built along the way, as one of the stylistic cornerstones to his philosophies in farming and winemaking at RAEN. After his formal studies were complete, Carlo worked with his father’s winemaking team at Robert Mondavi and Opus One. As winemakers and farmers, Carlo and Dante attribute a great deal of what they have learned to their grandfather, Robert, and father, Tim, both who influenced them from a young age. Building on their father’s passion for California Pinot Noir and their love of the cool rugged expanses of the Sonoma Coast, Carlo and Dante are holding true to their goal to responsibly produce world-class Pinot Noir from the western hills of the true Sonoma Coast with RAEN.
