Passaggio Wines is woman-owned and -operated by Cindy Cosco out of Treasure Island in San Francisco. Her focus and attention to Old World-style wines are a reflection of her style and vision. Cindy’s vision is about a great deal more than the production of outstanding wine. “Wine is a passion of mine,” Cindy says. Cindy’s vision is about a great deal more than the production of outstanding wine. “Wine is a passion of mine,” Cindy says. “I grew up watching my grandfather make wine. I remember these incredible dinners around the table with family, food, and wine.” It’s no surprise that her wines are lighter in style and made to pair with food.

 

 

Cynthia Cosco

As a winemaker, Cindy Cosco never stops evolving. ‘Passaggio,’ Italian for ‘passageway,’ reflects her winemaking journey — new adventures with each vintage, exploring traditional and off-the-beaten-path varieties. She is very fortunate to be able to source hard-to-find grape varietals along with traditional ones.

 

 

She takes great pride in her craft, assessing each vineyard and choosing the optimal time to harvest the grapes. She works for hands-on throughout the entire process, from pressing to vinification to bottling. “Winemaking is all about taking the fruit you are given and bringing out its very best. I love making different varietals that people rarely hear about or have tasted. That’s what’s fun.” Cindy says.
