Colin McNany, Winemaker
Colin McNany quickly established himself as La Honda’s head winemaker due to a startlingly clear talent and an ongoing series of award-winning wines. In 2012 Colin was invited onto the judging panel for Wine & Spirits Magazine.
Previously, Colin acquired significant expertise working alongside talented local winemakers at a number of local Santa Cruz Mountain wineries including Byington and Bargetto. He has also worked vintages at the world class Leeuwin Estate winery in Australia, the Martinborough winery in New Zealand and traveled extensively on wine expeditions to locations such as Chile and Argentina.
Colin is a graduate of University of California Santa Cruz in sustainable agriculture and viticulture. When not nurturing and hunting down the finest wines, Colin surfs the coast and dives for abalone.
