Born Anthony George Diener in Elizabeth, N.J., in 1910, he worked for more than 50 years at the Mont La Salle Vineyards in the Napa Valley, retiring in 1989 when the Brothers of the Christian Schools sold the wine and brandy operation to the Heublein Fine Wine Group. The Brothers of the Christian Schools, commonly known as the De La Salle Christian Brothers, had run a small business making sacramental and medicinal wines since the late 19th century and bought the larger Napa Valley vineyards in 1930.
