Di Costanzo is a collection of elegant, powerful and classically styled wines, each sourced from a single, heritage vineyard. At every site, we find a magical combination of responsible farming, mature vines, temperate micro-climates and soils formed by our region’s volcanic past. All of the Di Costanzo wines have their own distinct story, but when tasted comparatively they all exemplify the best of Napa and Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon, and belong together as a family.

“Massimo and Erin Di Costanzo continue to make some of the most striking Cabernets in Napa Valley. Readers who enjoy old-school Cabernet will adore these wines.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Caldwell Vineyard sits high on the southern rim of Napa’s Coombsville AVA, cooled by the San Pablo Bay, with a bird’s eye view up the valley.

Sustainably farmed, Di Costanzo Caldwell shines with complex aromatics and remarkably expressive fruit and structure.

DI CO tells a different story from Di Costanzo. Not necessarily from volcanic soils, and not always meant for as much aging, DI CO is serious and seriously delicious wine. DI CO started with a single vineyard Cabernet in 2016 and we are building on this, with our sights on new vineyards and varietals. Fresh stories from further afield are in our toolkit, waiting to be shared with you.

“If you've got a family member who wants to drink only Napa Cab and another one who refuses to drink Napa Cab, this is the wine to appease them both. Winemaker Massimo Di Costanzo brings a refined touch to the category…” – Esther Mobley, San Francisco Chronicle
Vines

DI CO Cabernet Sauvignon

is born from a single vineyard, located at an energetic exchange where Mt. Veeder tumbles down into the Oak Knoll AVA. The redwood trees high up on the neighboring mountainsides give way to oak trees further down the slopes, and sedimentary soils of sandstone and shale are home to mature grapevines, brambly blackberry bushes, and wild plum trees.

Not purchased juice, no declassified barrels. DI CO is always intentionally farmed and crafted, from start to finish. 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
