Welcome from Dr. Christopher J. Colloca

While I traveled abroad, I came to appreciate a different way of life. Cultures that embraced longer vacations, an appreciation of the simple beauty of the land, and taking time to enjoy a good meal and a great glass of wine from farm to table. On nearly each trip I took, I found myself in a vineyard. It was a calling to me to envision to create what is possible.

Colloca Estate is this vision realized carrying on the century’s old tradition of winemaking from my ancestors – from the Old World to the New World. La Dolce Vita!
