A Jewel Box Vineyard

Originally planted in the 19th Century and belonged to Josephine Tychson, the first woman to build a winery in the Napa Valley. The vineyard was removed during Prohibition and replanted in the mid 1990s by Ann Colgin with heritage clones of Cabernet Sauvignon. This aromatic and subtle wine is characterized by floral elements and red fruits.

“Tychson Hill is an exceptional site filled with Napa Valley history.”

During Prohibition, Josephine Tychson’s vines were ripped out, as happened at most of Napa Valley’s vineyards. Decades later the land was still fallow when we bought it, and the little Victorian house was in a state of disrepair. I was happy to have the privilege to restore one of Napa’s most historical vineyard sites.”

Ann Colgin, Vintner
