The House of Mondavi: The Rise and Fall of an American Wine Dynasty by Julia Flynn Siler

An epic, scandal-plagued story of the immigrant family that builtand then spectacularly losta global wine empire Set in Californias lush Napa Valley and spanning four generations of a talented and visionary family, The House of Mondavi is a tale of genius, sibling rivalry, and betrayal. From 1906, when Italian immigrant Cesare Mondavi passed through Ellis Island, to the Robert Mondavi Corp.s twenty-first-century battle over a billion-dollar fortune, award-winning journalist Julia Flynn brings to life both the place and the people in this riveting family drama. The blood feuds are as spectacular as the business triumphs. Cesares sons, Robert and Peter, literally came to blows in the 1960s during a dispute touched off by the purchase of a mink coat, resulting in Roberts exile from the familyand his subsequent founding of a winery that would set off a revolution in American winemaking. Roberts sons, Michael and Timothy, as passionate in their own ways as their visionary father, waged battle with each other for control of the company before Michaels expansive ambitions ultimately led to a board coup and the sale of the business to an international conglomerate. A meticulously reported narrative based on thousands of hours of interviews, The House of Mondavi is bound to become a classic.
