US: Mondavi family member joins Delicato
Delicato Family Vineyards has appointed a member of the Mondavi family to its board.
The California-based company said today (14 August) that Michael Mondavi was elected on to the board earlier this month. Mondavi co-founded the Robert Mondavi Winery with his father in 1966, and moved on to found Folio Fine Wine Partners in 2004.
"Mr. Mondavi's wealth of knowledge is of great value to Delicato Family Vineyards," said company CEO Chris Indelicato. "Mr. Mondavi shares Delicato's desire to build a thriving vineyard and wine company that consistently exceeds the expectations of its partners and its consumers."
Mondavi added: "With the addition of brands such as Gnarly Head, 337, Irony Napa Valley and the new partnership with Chateau Maris, as well as its continued emphasis on non-traditional packaging, Delicato will become an even bigger force behind the growth of this industry."
Mondavi was appointed president and CEO at Robert Mondavi following the company's public offering in 1994. He was chairman from 2001 to 2004 when the company was sold to Constellation Brands.
