Cosentino Winery is renowned for creating the first designated and licensed Meritage wine, a Bordeaux inspired blend that set the standard that others would follow.Founded in Napa in1980, Cosentino Winery released its inaugural vintage in 1981.  In 1989, they released America’s first designated and licensed “Meritage” wine, The Poet. The following year, in 1990, Cosentino launched what they called, THE Series, a line up of wines showcasing the best of the Lodi AVA. Today THE Series is their largest volume collection of wine from the Lodi AVA.  

And while Cosentino has long championed the Lodi Appellation, they are a Napa winery first and their commitment to producing quality ultra-premium wines from Napa, like The Poet, is still their narrative.
