Gary Lipp President/Owner
Coho Wine | Napa, California | www.cohowines.com
After five years living to ski in Steamboat Springs, Gary learned that though you can’t have too much fun, you might need to pursue it in a new environment. The wine was calling and it said to move to Napa Valley to work for Joe Heitz in his cellar. A few years later Gary decided to learn how to market and sell wine with Robert Mondavi Winery. The highlight of his eleven years there was five spent living in London as the winery’s first Export Director.
Additional opportunities and responsibilities were with The Chalone Group, Artisans and Estates, Domaine Chandon, Paul Hobbs, and Chappellet. All contributed to the skills and passion that helped Gary start COHO in 2002.
Concentrating on vineyard sites in the cooler climate appellations of Napa Valley, COHO’s goal is to make balanced, supple, delicious wines. Gary’s goal is to have you enjoy his wines with good food and people that make you smile.
