Fourth Generation Mondavis Drive Vision for Flat Top Hills


New line now available in major markets throughout the United States

Napa, CA, August 27, 2019 – With bold flavors, distinctive fruit-forward style, and sleek design, Flat Top Hills wines are now releasing into markets across the United States. The newest wines from the iconic C. Mondavi & Family, Flat Top Hills is a modern line built on four generations of winemaking history.

Meticulously crafted by consulting winemaker Angelina Mondavi, who is partnering with head winemaker Randy Herron, the line marks the first time a member of the “G4,” the fourth generation of the C. Mondavi family, has been involved in winemaking under the family-owned and family-run company banner. Now increasing their role within the family business, the six Mondavi cousins who make up the “G4” are proud to expand their premiere offering.

“In my decades as a winemaker, I’ve created my own wines and contributed to a number of outside projects; now I get to work for the company my great-grandparents founded, which is an incredible honor,” said Angelina Mondavi, part of the G4 and consulting winemaker of Flat Top Hills. “With this new line, our generation is beginning to write our own chapter of our family story. These are the kinds of wines we want to drink and enjoy with our friends.”

Inspired by the Mondavi family vineyards in the Dunnigan Hills, which are planted over and among the distinctive “flat-topped” summits, current Flat Top Hills releases include, 2018 Rosé (SRP $13.99), 2018 Sauvignon Blanc (SRP $13.99), 2018 Chardonnay (SRP $13.99), 2016 Red Blend (SRP $15.99), and 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (SRP $15.99). Additional sourcing comes from appellations throughout California, allowing Mondavi and Herron to choose from individual vineyards in the Alexander Valley, Monterey, Lodi and more, for specific flavor profiles and complexity.

“We highlight the diversity of our vineyards, and the quality of the fruit shines,” said Randy Herron, head winemaker, Flat Top Hills. “The wines are bold, fruit-forward, and immensely quaffable.”

Flat Top Hills is available at fine wine retailers and restaurants across the East, South and Midwest, with full national distribution in early Spring, 2020.
