About Folio Winemakers' Studio:

Folio Winemakers' Studio is home to several wine companies and Folio brands. Oberon and Hangtime are actually made at the winery. Folio Winemakers' Studio represents another branch in the Mondavi family tree of winemakers.

The Studio is owned, operated and cared for by members of the Mondavi family: Michael and his wife Isabel, along with their children Rob and Dina. Inspiration for wine making always came easily to the Mondavi family.

Robert had been in the wine business since he was a high schooler following in his father Cesare's footsteps. And Cesare Mondavi began it all in Lodi, California where he found grapes and winemaking supplies for local families to make legal wine during prohibition.Today the Mondavi name is known world wide for finely crafted and artfully produced wines.

About Rob Mondavi, Jr.:

Rob is an owner and President of Winegrowing at Folio Fine Wine Partners. He oversees all the winemaking at the Folio Winemakers' Studio. His Father Michael and Grandfather Robert Mondavi founded the Robert Mondavi Winery.

They quickly established themselves as innovators and helped put California wines on the map. Michael made wines for the first nine years of his career and now Rob continues the tradition at Folio.
