Colgin Cellars, founded by Ann Colgin produced their first Cabernet Sauvignon from the 1992 vintage with fruit harvested from Herb Lamb vineyards. Ann Colgin, like many other well-known wine makers got into the business due to her passion for wine. After earning degrees from Vanderbilt and New York University Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development, Ann Colgin started working in the art art world, first at Christie’s and then Sotheby’s. It was during her tenure at Sotheby’s that Ann Colgin developed her interest in wine. One of the first wines that changed her life was tasting her first bottle of the legendary, 1961 Chateau Latour! What happened next was, during a visit to Napa Valley in 1988, while married to Fred Schrader, they attended one of the famous events associated with the Napa Valley Wine Auction. A few short years later, Ann Colgin and Fred Schrader founded Colgin Cellars. Colgin and Schrader dissolved their partnership and marriage. Ann Colgin retained Colgin Cellars and Fred Schrader went on to create Schrader Cellars. Today Colgin produces wines that are mostly based on Cabernet Sauvignon and regularly score 100-point ratings from Robert Parker.
