Greg Cole and Bob Craig go back a long way — both started their projects in the mid-1990s. Greg opened Celadon in a then-obscure location in Napa in 1996, long before downtown Napa became a culinary and wine hotspot. His place was an instant success and followed up with the hugely successful Cole's Chop House in 2000.
Bob was starting his winery in the 1990s, releasing his first Cabernets in 1995. Bob's Cabernets were also an immediate success and Robert Craig was named a "hot new winery" by the Wine Spectator. Greg immediately came on board, making the Robert Craig Affinity a regular offering on his wine lists. In 2007, when Greg was invited by the James Beard Foundation to host a ‘Downtown Napa Dinner’ at the famous James Beard House in New York, he invited Bob to join him as the featured winery.
