Sonora, CA — Mount Brow Winery will have a new owner come January.

It has not yet been announced who has purchased the winery. The Costello’s will continue to operate the tasting room, business as usual, through December 22.
“We planted the vineyard 20 years ago and started the winery 10 years ago,” says Jim Costello. “We couldn’t be happier that a young, high energy, local couple will keep the brand going.”
During the weekend of November 23rd the Costello’s will celebrate their 10th anniversary in the winery business.

Costello notes that commercial customers will not notice any type of interruption in supply, and the wine will continue to be available at many local retailers and restaurants.
