We are pleased to announce this very special dinner featuring wines from Krupp Brothers Winery. Our dinner will be held at Cordeiro’s Steakhouse in the recently constructed private dining building at the rear of the property. We worked with staff from both Krupp Brothers and Cordeiro’s to create a menu that will pair perfectly with the wines.
Members David and Valerie Lasker discovered Krupp Brothers at an Atlas Peak Appellation event several years ago. Many of the wines poured were from Stagecoach Vineyard, and the best of those wines were made by Krupp Brothers. We arranged with Krupp for a tour and tasting at Stagecoach and were so impressed that we joined their wine club. We have been enjoying their wines ever since then.
In 1995, Dr. Jan Krupp started developing the land at the top of Soda Canyon Road that is now Stagecoach Vineyard. It took him seven years to clear more than a billion pounds of volcanic rock. Another challenge was lack of water. Jan hired a world-renowned geologist who failed to find water. Instead of quitting, Jan hired a “water witch” who walked the property with her apparatus of two copper rods, stopping abruptly at one spot where an underground stream was found at a depth of 400 feet. Now with nearly 600 acres planted to vines, the Cabernet-focused Stagecoach is the largest contiguous vineyard in the Napa Valley. Over 90 wineries craft premium wines from the fruit harvested on this dramatic terrain. Cick here to read more about Stagecoach Vineyard.
In 1999, Jan and his brother Bart founded Krupp Brothers, producing extraordinary wines from Stagecoach Vineyard. Their wines are both made from classic Bordeaux varietals, as well as some non-traditional blends made with Viognier, Roussanne, Tempranillo, and Syrah. Their wines are frequently rated in the mid-90’s by Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator. The brothers sold Stagecoach in 2017, but Jan continues in his role at the vineyard, paying careful attention to the farming of the blocks retained for Krupp Brothers Winery.
Only a few hundred cases of each of the Krupp Brothers wines are made each year. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy dinner at Cordeiro’s and taste these limited production wines. Dr. Krupp will join us and introduce himself to the group at the event.
Krupp Brothers wines may be ordered at a 20% discount at the event. Those who join the wine club and order 6 or more bottles will receive a 30% discount.
