For thirty years, we were enamored of Cosentino wines, and there was good reason to be enamored. That reason was Mitch Cosentino. His remarkable wines that reflected California’s bounty and opulence but still showed the restraint and elegance of the Old World were a treat, be they red or white, entry-level or flagship. He sold his stake in his namesake winery in 2010, but hasn’t stopped making wine, and now has another 12 years under his belt at his current home, PureCru. On Wednesday, April 20, Mitch will pull into town and park at Feast with four of his numerous wines, and we’ll build a dinner around them. If you’d like to join us, reservations can be had at (520) 326-9363. The menu looks like this:
