Colgin Cellars produces exquisitely handcrafted red wines using only the finest neo-classical winemaking methods in concert with small yields, gentle handling, attentive sorting and meticulous blending.
We vinify fruit from a portfolio of Napa Valley vineyards with exceptional soils and microclimates, producing a continuity of quality that is distinctly Colgin.
The Colgin winery, completed in 2002, is located at the northern end of IX Estate in the eastern hills above Oakville, California. The state-of-the-art winery provides an inspiring view of Lake Hennessey.
Cariad, the Welsh word for “love”, is a Bordeaux-style red wine blended from three outstanding vineyards owned and managed by David Abreu. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc from Madrona Ranch are blended with small amounts of fruit from Thorevilos and Howell Mountain, producing a wine of enormous proportions with a classic structure that is the Colgin hallmark: a plethora of vibrant aromas, voluptuous at mid-palate, with impeccable balance and an exceptionally long finish. A wine as seductive as its name.
