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 97, 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.
We would like to thank Jayson Woodbridge, our mentor and inspiration; our mother, Janice, who has been an exceptional mediator and our backbone; our father, Marc, who provided us with invaluable wine knowledge and tolerated the "house of little women."
Thanks to your support and guidance, our dream is now a reality.
