In 1980, Mitch Cosentino began making wine from small lots in Modesto, California. Moving his operation to Napa Valley nearly 10 years later, he pursued his dream of becoming a great Napa winemaker. His highly skilled and artistic style of winemaking has enabled him to craft award winning wines with an old world attitude.
Mitch’s winemaking philosophy was to start from the soils of Northern California, so he set out to find the perfect vineyards for his wines. “The greater knowledge I have of local terroir and where my fruit is sourced,” Mitch says, “the greater knowledge I have of the blends, how the fruit will come together in bottle and how consistent my wine will be from vintage to vintage.” Mitch’s sophisticated palate has aided him as a judge for many wine competitions, such as the Los Angeles International Wine and Spirits Competition, and others throughout the country.
On the rare occasions that Mitch isn't at the winery, he can be found honing his skills on the golf course.

Michael Rossi & Ray Gonzalez - The Ranch Restaurant and Saloon

A 20,000 square foot restaurant, wine cellar and saloon featuring live country music located on the ground floor of the new Extron Electronics Corporate Headquarters at 1025 East Ball Road in Anaheim, California. THE RANCH is a long time dream and vision of Andrew Edwards, president and owner of Extron Electronics, a leading manufacturer of professional AV system integration products for over 28 years.


THE RANCH Restaurant will feature true American regional cuisine. We’re cooking from scratch with the finest ingredients possible to capture the rustic style of wine country and the freshest flavors of the farm. We will honor California’s great ranches, farms and dairies, the artisan bread bakers and cheese and wine makers. Our seasonally driven menu will showcase the freshest produce in season- as nature intended. The emphasis will be on farm to table, fresh organically grown fruits and vegetables from local farms and from our own ranch in the Santa Ana Mountains.

You can look forward to mountain lamb flown in from Colorado; steaks and beef from the highest quality ranches in the U.S. and seafood sourced from those who ensure the sustainability and the bounty of our oceans. The dining experience will be in an atmosphere of comfort and truly old-fashioned genuine hospitality. THE RANCH’s wine program will feature an extensive and complete cellar and a world class selection of wine served in a friendly "non-intimidating" style. The restaurant's bar will feature a large selection of wines by the glass along with selected hand-crafted draft beers and the latest in mixology with fresh ingredients and great flavors. Don’t fret, there will also be plenty of cold longnecks in THE RANCH Saloon to cool down with after dancing the two-step, line dancing, or learning the California state dance, the “west coast swing” to your favorite country artists!
