Winemaking at Opus One resolves to a single goal: to produce an extraordinary wine. No compromises are made. Guided by the vision of founders, Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, winemaker Michael Silacci combines intuition and technical acumen with the dual perspective of viticulturist and winemaker.
