Mike Moone is up to something. He always is. With his passion for ideas, tireless imagination, and a contagious joie de vivre, Mike has burnished a reputation as one of Napa Valley's most iconic visionaries and enterprise-builders.
Born and raised in Santa Monica, California, amidst the breezy beach-boy culture of the 1960's, Mike grew up living the California dream of endless summers, enduring promise and limitless possibilities. While this charmed view might have washed out with the undertow, it instead engendered an outlook that Mike carried with him to college and beyond. Upon graduating from UCLA, he embarked on a career that led him through the upper reaches of classic corporate America. After making his mark in a variety of CEO roles, Mike connected his long-standing passion for wine to building a series of wine-enterprises in the Napa Valley, not the least of which included his storied leadership transforming Beringer Vineyards, the establishment of Silverado Partners, and his involvement as a co-founder of Moone-Tsai wines. With a career spanning nearly 40 years in Napa Valley's wine history, everyone knows that Mike has been up to something good.
