Summary
Set in California's Napa Valley and spanning four generations of a talented and visionary family, this 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 21st-century battle over a billion-dollar fortune, journalist Julia Flynn brings to life both the place and the people. The feuds are as spectacular as the business triumphs. Cesare's sons, Robert and Peter, literally came to blows in the 1960s during a dispute over a mink coat, resulting in Robert's exile from the family--and his founding of a winery that would set off a revolution in American winemaking. Robert's sons, Michael and Timothy, as passionate in their own ways as their visionary father, battled with each other for control of the company before Michael's expansive ambitions ultimately led to a board coup and sale to an international conglomerate.--From publisher description
