After an in-depth tasting of preliminary blends with Cosentino in 2008, Couples knew he had found the right partner. “We are producing limited production wines designed to accompany fine world cuisine. But wine that also works artistically and stands on its own.” Mitch Cosentino - Couples & Co. is a product of pureCru Napa Valley, an ultra-premium winery of limited production wines.
