The Team

Mark Kaigas

Mark Kaigas is a native of the East Bay who spent his early years as a senior-level financial analyst. Eventually growing tired of working ten-hour days under florescent lights, he and his wife Kathe, a school administrator, left their jobs in San Diego to enroll in the Enology Program at Fresno State where they became active in the school’s winery, producing over 50 small lot wines from experimental grapes grown in the campus vineyard. Upon graduation Mark worked as lab analyst at Castoro Cellars in Paso Robles and the Delegat Wine Estate in New Zealand. He joined Colgin Cellars in 2009 as Production Assistant, then Assistant Winemaker, working closely with Allison Tauziet.
