"It’s that time of year again, the Mondavis are back at Brennan’s for another Continuum dinner. After leaving the Opus One project, winemaker Tim Mondavi started a new family venture called Continuum on Pritchard Hil, focusing on only one wine, the cabernet blend. He has already carved out a place as one of Napa’s best winemakers and Continuum lives up to his reputation.  His daughter, Carissa Mondavi, will be on hand to guide us through her family legacy and share some new history with us. Since Continuum only produces red wine, we decided to pair up with another one of Napa Valley’s iconic families, the Staglins. Like the Mondavis, the Staglins have been a huge part of Napa Valley for decades. Two of the Staglin Family chardonnays will be poured for the dinner for those fans of white wine. This is not a wine dinner to be missed." -- Jason Sherman, Wine Guy & Wine Director
