Mondavi personally selects wine casks with exceptional grain and rich color to create this rare oak barrel flooring collection.
Locust Grove, GA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
Authentic Pine Floors has partnered with the Mondavi family to become the exclusive wood floor manufacturer for the Mondavi Home Collection. The collection, inspired by Rob and Lydia's Napa Valley lifestyle, passion for wine and appreciation for sustainable living, will feature prefinished floors produced using reclaimed material. Additional partners of the Mondavi Home Collection include Kohler, Kallista, Ann Sacks, Cosentino, Viking and Benjamin Moore.
Rob and Lydia already had the first floor for the collection in mind when they approached Authentic Pine Floors, the Reserve Barrel Collection. The floor is produced from decommissioned wine casks personally selected by Rob. Authentic Pine Floors then carefully dismantles and mills each wine cask into flooring. Mondavi and Authentic Pine Floors agreed to produce the floor in an engineered profile in order to reduce wasted wine casks. Additional floors will be added to the collection in the near future.
Zack McMurry, president of Authentic Pine Floors, explains, "Mondavi personally selects wine casks with exceptional grain and rich color to create this rare oak barrel flooring collection."
Mondavi recalls, "I'm constantly amazed at the beauty and depth of penetration that the wines impart into the actual wood. After years of aging the wines, this floor holds a piece of wine making history and we have captured this through our partnership with Authentic Pine Flooring."
Rob & Lydia will be with Authentic Pine Floors at the International Builder's Show-Booth C3453, (Feb. 4-6, Las Vegas, NV) to showcase the floor as part of the Mondavi Home Collection. Wine tastings in the afternoons will feature "Spellbound Wines," born of Rob's desire to craft everyday, approachable wines from California.
