Cosentino Winery Yountville Reviews
Fun and Friendly Winery With Awesome Wines Aug 27, 2009
Cosentino Winery is a must-stop on every trip we take to Napa Valley. Their vine-covered tasting room is fun and friendly, and their wines are fantastic! I signed up for their wine club on my very first visit, and we travel to Yountville twice a year just to drink their wine.
There are nominal fees for tasting, but are waived if you join their wine club or buy a bottle of wine. The tasting room is congenial and fun, where you "belly up to the bar" and start drinking. The pours are very generous, and there are no limits on how much or what you can taste - oftentimes the staff will have library selections and other interesting bottles open.
Note that this is a *very* laid back tasting room. It is not stuffy nor is it a place to go if you are particularly interested in learning about wine. It's mostly a place to go for fun camaraderie with fellow wine drinkers. No wine snobs are allowed here!
Sometimes the tasting room can get really crowded and it is pretty small, but just walk away from the bar to make room for fellow patrons. There are a couple of picnic tables outside that you can use for free if you want to bring your own lunch.
If they are pouring it, make sure you ask for a taste of the CE2V Secret Clone. You will not be disappointed!
