Winemaker Tony Coltrin Sees 50 Plus Harvests & Expansion to Paso Robles
NAPA, Calif., (Nov. 6, 2023) — Oberon Wines, rooted in the Napa Valley, is proud to announce a significant occasion in its history. Winemaker Tony Coltrin celebrates a half century of winemaking with an expansion from Napa to the acclaimed Paso Robles region.
Amidst the ongoing harvest currently underway in Napa Valley, Oberon Wines is delighted to toast to an extraordinary milestone for both its head winemaker and the winery itself. Recently Oberon Wines released its 2022 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc from winemaker Tony Coltrin’s 50th harvest. As Coltrin ushers in his 51st harvest, he now sets his sights on an area that has captivated his imagination for more than two decades: Paso Robles.
“I’ve been fortunate to be mentored by, and to make and share wine with the Mondavi family over the course of my 50 harvests. It was working with them that I had an opportunity in the late 1990’s to taste the grapes and wines from a new vineyard project planted in Santa Margarita on one of their ranches. I was very impressed with the soils and climate of the region, the pioneering spirit of the local vintners, and the incredible quality of the grapes and wines,” remarked Tony Coltrin, Oberon Wines winemaker. “When given the opportunity to craft a new wine from this appellation, I took great care to honor and reflect Paso Robles’ unique character and soul. This wine is a thoughtful expression of an area I’ve always admired.”
Oberon Wines current offerings include a Carneros Chardonnay, Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley Merlot, Napa County Cabernet Sauvignon, and now, Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon.
