Memories of Cosentino Holidays Past

<strong>Christmas with Cosentino</strong> Over the years, I have been blessed with countless great Christmas celebrations.  When we were kids in Modesto, CA, it was always my parents, my brother and sister, and my maternal gran

dparents that got together to celebrate Christmas Eve. We’d enjoy dinner and presents (lots of presents!) then head off to Gustine, CA for Christmas Day. My family and I would congregate at Nana’s house (my dad’s mother) for a big Italian feast in the afternoon with aunts, uncles, and cousins. There was always quite the spread — homemade ravioli, more pastas, meats — those were the best of times. One very memorable Christmas I recall was in the early 90s. It was Christmas Day and my family and I were in Gustine as usual. It was the last time we were able to have everyone together as my mother passed away the viagra generic usa following year. Nana was 101 yrs old and one of the great grandkids had brought along

Author:Mitch (Winemaker)

In 1980, Mitch Cosentino began making wine from small lots in Modesto, California. Moving his operation to Napa Valley nearly 10 years later, he pursued his dream of becoming a great Napa winemaker. His highly skilled and artistic style of winemaking has enabled him to craft award winning wines with an old world attitude. On the rare occasions that Mitch isn't at the winery, he can be found honing his skills on the golf course.

    We share the same dilemna. So many fine selections. I was so tempted to ask you which Poet to take to a very special dinner on Wednesday. This dinner was really special. It was really a tough decision, but I decided on the 2006 and the moment the cork was removed the contents evaporated. I mean literally evaporated within 5-10 minutes. No seconds on that one. It was so delicious that I did actually experienced a brief moment of remorse for it’s exposure. Oh well! I’ll just have to replenish. The guests ranted and rave about it. Sorry there wasn’t more, but the guests are now aware of its origin. They were super impressed with my selection. Always nice to impress, especially when that’s solely not the objective. Joy!

    That is always a challenge, Sharon. Thanks for the comment. When you open a great wine, it doesn’t last long does it? You will still have the memories with the folks you shared it with and have them yearning for more and you know how to get it ;)

    Now we head into the New Year. Our best wishes to you, family and friends!
