Visiting Colagrossi Wines in Windsor is like being welcomed home. Maybe it’s the aroma of wine aging in oak barrels or maybe it’s the warm welcome all visitors receive from owner Craig Colagrossi who greets all with an easy smile.

Colagrossi Wines prides itself on crafting very special wines from small lots of carefully selected California grapes. Craig Colagrossi combines his love for his family’s Italian tradition with his years of experience in the California wine industry in building his Windsor-based boutique (for now) winery. Colagrossi Wines is located along Windsor’s Bell Road beverage district, and along with the other businesses there, is creating a synergistic community of up-and-coming artisan producers.

Their Windsor Story:

The Colagrossi family has been in Windsor for a little over 10 years. They chose it for the small-town family feel that assured them Windsor would be the right place to raise their son. Craig was operating his winery out of a shared facility in Santa Rosa at the time when one day he came across a vacant facility in a neighborhood just south of the town square. “The Town of Windsor was fantastic from the get-go,” said Craig.  “From getting the permits to everything else there is a small town feel here. Everyone is willing to help and get you headed in the right direction.”

“When I met with the planning and permitting department, it was so easy to actually get things passed through. They were very friendly, very supportive, and they were excited to see the beverage district grow.”
