Colgin Cellars is a winery in Napa Valley, California founded in 1992.

History[edit]

Ann Colgin founded Colgin Cellars in 1992; at the time, she purchased grapes from the Lamb vineyard and produced wine at a vintner's co-op in Napa; the vintages from 1992-97 were produced in this way.[2]

In 1997, she purchased the Tychson estate; remodeling the house, and replanting the vineyard to wine grapes for the first time since Prohibition. She expanded further in 1998, purchasing the IX estate, where the winery's production facility now is.[2][3]
