Yountville, Calif. -- The shoe has finally dropped on Cosentino Winery. After 30 years in business and repeated attempts to avoid failure, the 70,000-case winery closed its doors Nov. 11 and ceased operations.

The highly desirable property on Highway 29 is now for sale. Winery co-founder Mitch Cosentino, who is no longer involved with the company, said a buyer may be announced shortly.

Cosentino Winery Description

Right along busy Highway 12, you can’t miss the attractive ivy-covered edifice of Consentino Winery. The massive two-story structure, with its heavy wooden doors, houses one of Mitch Consentino’s three California winery operations. He began in 1980 making wine in small lots in Modesto; ten years later he moved his operation to the Napa Valley. Here he continues a hands-on, old-world approach to winemaking. His "micro" approach uses punched-cap fermentation -- a labor-intensive method -- and other traditional winemaking techniques.

The tile-floored tasting room is moderate in size and has a unique copper-topped wine-tasting bar. Logo clothing, wine accessories and some gourmet food items are for sale. There is a separate VIP and club-member tasting room.

The winery focuses on small, distinctive vineyard lots, allowing the fruit sources and varietal characteristics to determine the blends. Cosentino produces 47 ultra-premium, limited-production wines from more than 15 grape varieties. He sources his fruit from a number of regions including the Russian River area, Sonoma Valley, and vineyards in Napa Valley.

The whites include Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Grigio. Reds include Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and his special “Cigar Zin.” Also produced are the dessert wines of Late-Harvest Viognier, Cabernet Franc Port, a Botrytis Semillon and other offerings.

Zin indeed
Joe, San Diego
I found this winery to be magnificent. The land, the structure and most importantly the wine was elegant and in generous proportion. The unique blends of varietals caught me off guard, I was not expecting such a selection. It can never be too much but it can be overwhelming. Nonetheless it was a wonderful time and I would recommend stopping by, whatever you are looking for I am sure that they will have it-and more.
