Colgin Cellars

For over three decades, Colgin Cellars has embraced the ideal of crafting wines of perfume, freshness, and minerality from exceptional hillside vineyards in the heart of the Napa Valley. Driven by a love for the land and a reverence for the artistic beauty of fine wine, Colgin Cellars is synonymous with elegance, power, and longevity. We have a shared vision of creating lasting memories by capturing a singular expression of time and place.

Creation date: 1992

Since 1992, the ethos of Colgin Cellars is to create wines of perfume, freshness, and minerality while embracing the diversity of hillside sites in the Napa Valley. The Napa region is one of the most diverse places for growing grapes on Earth. In an area that is home to over half of the world’s soil types, there are specific sites that stand out as being world-class in quality and distinct in their nature. The combination of unique geology coupled with mid-slope elevations, and cooling airflow in concert with precision farming, establishes certain sites as the pinnacle of quality for the Napa Valley.

It is our privilege to produce profound wines that magnify the inherent beauty and complexity found in these distinctive hillside vineyards.

Colgin Cellars’ reputation is built upon the incomparable quality of their four, exceptional wines: the three Cabernet Sauvignon-based bottlings, “Tychson Hill,” “Cariad,” and “IX Estate,” in addition to their “IX Estate” Syrah. Each Colgin wine is the highest expression of the land and world-class in its quality.

“When you take the scientific element, the soulful feeling of growing something, and the craft of constantly striving to make it better, combined with our ideas of making wines of perfume, freshness, and minerality, that’s where we believe the real magic happens.“
