Colgin Cellars - Winery - The Team

The Team

Scott Zellmer

Scott attended Westmont College in Santa Barbara where he graduated with a degree in Chemistry. Upon returning to his hometown of Livermore, California, he joined the team at Wente Vineyards and quickly discovered that winemaking, with its harmonic blend of science and creativity, was an intriguing endeavor well suited to his interests. He pursued his passion around the globe where he specialized in Rhone varieties during his stint at Two Hands Wines in South Australia and Bordeaux varieties while working a harvest at Vilafonté in South Africa. After interning at Colgin in both the 2015 and 2016 vintages, he joined the team full time as Production Assistant in 2017. When he is not devoting his time to wine, Scott enjoys cultivating his passion for music via songwriting, playing guitar, and attending live performances.
