Our winery is the dream of two brothers who nurtured a passion for wine over decades. After setting down roots in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jan - an internist with a private medical practice - pursued his winemaking as a hobby for 15 years. While continuing to commute to his medical practice, Jan moved to Napa in 1991 and began to tend grapes – first planting a vineyard surrounding his family's house and then with the help of Bart, he would develop what would become one of Napa's most iconic vineyards, Stagecoach.
In 1999, Jan and Bart founded Krupp Brothers, producing their first vintage: An extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon. Our wines begin at the source – fruit from select blocks that have been carefully chosen by Jan. Today, each wine in our collection – from our mountain Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignons to our Rhone-style Syrah and Tempranillo-based red – embody the vision and passion that has guided the two brothers. We invite you to try them.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Veraison Cabernet opens with stunning boysenberry, cinnamon, and clove scents, with a hint of California bay leaf. Elegantly structured with a velvety texture and weight, the palate reveals dark, juicy boysenberry, semisweet dark chocolate, and nuances of cardamom and clove for a long, beautifully layered finish. Pair with filet mignon in a mushroom wine reduction, rack of lamb or grilled eggplant.
Drink now through 2035.
