ST. HELENA, Calif., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Angelina E. Mondavi is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Professional in the field of Winemaking as a result of her role as Winemaker/Co-Proprietor of Dark Matter Wines.

After years of hard work and planning, we are thrilled to introduce you to joint venture, Dark Matter Wines. In conceiving Dark Matter Wines, we took inspiration from Classic European wine families where values and craftsmanship are passed down through generations. Like them, we based our business on the foundation of family tradition.

Our great grandparents, Cesare and Rosa Mondavi, purchased Charles Krug shortly after the end of prohibition. Together, they helped spearhead the renaissance of the California wine industry. Our grandparents, Peter Sr. and Blanche, took over operations in 1966. Our grandpa went on to introduce revolutionary winemaking techniques commonly used today, including cold fermentation, cold sterile filtration, and aging wine in small French oak barrels. At 98, he still works closely with our father, Marc, and uncle Peter Jr., to share the responsibility for continuing the legacy of Charles Krug.

We spent our childhood preparing to be the fourth generation, honing our ambitions, and mastering the significance of hand-crafted wines. Our mission is to create wines with the same passion and devotion as the generations before us.

Angelina Mondavi is at the forefront of a new generation of winemakers in Napa Valley. She is the Winemaker and Co-Proprietor of Dark Matter Wines, a joint venture with her three sisters.  She specializes in winemaking and business management.  She is on the Executive Board for the Napa Wine Library Association and Villanova Public Policy Advisory Board, in addition to being an Area Coordinator for the National Italian American Federation.  She is also a member of National Association of Professional Women.

Throughout her educational career, Angelina has earned her Bachelor's Degree from Villanova University, in which she majored in Chemistry with a minor in Business, and has her Masters Degree in Oenology from the University of Adelaide's Waite Campus.
