Any good California winery can be judged according to the quality of wines produced and the variety of the selections offered. That is why we at Maria Concetta Winery are confident that you will be making an unforgettable, pleasant experience with us.
At Maria Concetto Winery, we are incredibly dedicated to producing wines of integrity from Napa Valley, Sonoma County, and Mendocino County. We have been working since 2020 to source and produce the region’s best expression of various wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Pinot Noire, Chardonnay, Rose, Moscato, and Bordeaux-style red blends.
Wines in Prime Locations
Much like in real estate, location, location, and location are deemed to be among the most important elements in producing great wine. That’s because the geographical climate and natural topography inevitably impact the growth and quality of the grapes that will be later turned into wine.
Our wines come from three distinctive California wine regions: Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties. Each of these locations has its own perks and advantages when it comes to producing great-tasting wine.
Napa, for example, may be small in terms of regional size, especially compared to Bordeaux, France. But nonetheless, its topographical diversity makes it more than capable of competing head-on when it comes to delivering richness in quality and flavor.
Napa Valley is known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Climate, soil, and terrain are what make Napa unique. Napa Valley's climate is very rare—the summers are warm, the winters are mild, and it only rains for a few months a year. This gives the vines a long growing season. The warm days allow the grapes to ripen and develop a deep flavor and sugar, which later ferments into alcohol. Meanwhile, the cool morning fog allows the vines to rest and preserve acid in the fruit.
Napa Valley is a small winemaking region—it is just 30 miles long and 5 miles wide. In contrast, Bordeaux in France is eight times larger than Napa Valley. Despite the small size of Napa Valley, its topographical diversity more than makes up for it in the wines it produces. Napa Valley is home to mountain terrain, valley floors, and benchlands—flat terrain surrounded by high slopes.
As for Sonoma, its varying geography, from valleys to mountains to beaches to coast, all contribute to a dynamic production experience for unique and distinct wine flavors.
Sonoma County's range of geography—valleys to mountains, coastal ranges to inland benchlands—is second to none. The size and distance between these distinctive AVAs ensure individualism of wines, viticultural approaches, and myriad philosophies of winemaking.
Sonoma County is renowned for producing high-quality wines of distinction. The region is also a standard-bearer for best practices beyond just wine production, as a champion of true sustainability.
Meanwhile, Mendocino County is known to be a comfortable home for both red and white grape varieties. Its cooler areas are perfect for Pinot Noir, sparkling wines, and Chardonnay. Meanwhile, the warmer areas are great for more robust red wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Syrah, and Zinfandel.
Quality Selection for Every Occasion
Whatever the occasion may be, whatever your mood might be, you can be sure to find wine that will not only enhance your collection, but most importantly, enhance your experience drinking it.

Gregory Graziano – Mendocino County
Gregory Graziano is not new to winemaking. He has over fifty years of experience in wine and graduated from UC Davis’ Viticulture and Enology program. He is an award-winning winemaker who comes from a long line of Italian winemakers and brings a level of excellence and skill to winemaking that only comes from seasoned experts.
It is a tale of travel, immigration, hard work, and dedication to winemaking that brought Gregory Graziano and Maria Reznikova together to make wine. Bonding over their love of wine and Italy, penchant for travel, and unique Russian-Jewish and Italian heritage, Reznikova and Graziano formed a friendship that turned into a business adventure—and Maria Concetto Winery was born.
Harnessing the perfect terroir of the Mendocino valley, Graziano ensures that each vintage is full of flavors characteristic to their varietals and the climate from which they originate.
