New York--In California, the fifth and sixth generations of the Asscher family came together with another storied business family, the Mondavis, to mark two milestones.
This year is the 160th anniversary of Royal Asscher and the 100th birthday of the patriarch of the Mondavi family, Peter Mondavi Sr. The Mondavis are the owners and vintners of Charles Krug Winery in Napa Valley, Calif. and, together with the Asschers, they assembled a lot for a recent charity auction in California that sold for $110,000.
Elsewhere, Longines timed California Chrome coming up short in the third leg of the Triple Crown and designer Robert Procop displayed new platinum pieces in New York.
