PERSPECTIVES:

Two Visions. Varied Experiences. Truly Inspiring.

A conversation with Cathy Corison, Corison and Colleen FitzGerald of Pine Ridge Vineyards


Colleen FitzGerald is ten years into her career in the wine industry. She has been inspired by the innovation and determination of Cathy Corison, whose journey began nearly 45 years ago.

Colleen earned her BS in biochemistry from Cal Poly in 2012 and began working for Pine Ridge as a harvest intern in 2013. She became its enologist in 2015 as well as assistant winemaker in 2018. In 2020, Pine Ridge launched its first new label in 25 years, a sparkling version of their proprietary Chenin Blanc+Viognier blend guided by Colleen.

After graduating from Pomona College, Cathy earned an MS in enology from UC Davis in 1978 while working in the tasting room of Sterling Vineyards. She then interned with Freemark Abbey, going on to become winemaker at Yverdon in 1979. In 1980, Cathy was hired by Chappellet Winery as winemaker before founding Corison Winery in 1987.

This Perspectives event provides a rare opportunity for Colleen and others to learn and be inspired by Cathy's experience and the hurdles she’s had to overcome.
