Christopher spent his first summers in Napa doing cellar internships at Cain Vineyards and Blankiet Estate and doing irrigation management for vineyards all over Napa and Sonoma. In 2006, Christopher brought his tireless work ethic and commitment to excellence to Colgin Cellars. During Christopher's 5 year tenure as Assistant Winemaker, Colgin received 7 perfect 100 point ratings from renowned wine critic Robert Parker Jr. The philosophy at Colgin was low yield farming and no compromise winemaking. It was an inspiring place to work. It is that same lofty philosophy that led Christopher to Cliff Lede Vineyards in the summer of 2012.
