The hunt to find unrivaled vineyard land led Dr. Jan Krupp high into Napa Valley’s eastern hills to a harsh mountain site, strewn with rocks and choked with chaparral, straddling Pritchard Hill and the Atlas Peak appellation. A physician with a green thumb and a passion for great wine, Krupp purchased a 41-acre property here in 1991 and began clearing the land for his new vineyard.

Stagecoach Vineyard: History The hunt to find unrivaled vineyard land led Dr. Jan Krupp, a physician with a green thumb and a passion for great wine, high into Napa Valley’s eastern hills in 1991 to a harsh mountain site strewn with rocks and choked with chaparral. Straddling the Pritchard Hilland the Atlas Peak appellation and stretching over 1,100 contiguous, undulating acres: Jan was positive that the varied terrain of rocky, volcanic soils would be ideal for growing world-class wine grapes. A half-million tons of rock and debris later, the Krupp Brothers (Jan’s brother Bart joined the team shortly after the original purchase of the property) had carved three of Napa Valley’s most esteemed vineyards out of what had once been considered virtual wilderness: the original Krupp Vineyard, Krupp Brothers Vineyard, and the legendary Stagecoach Vineyard. Surrounded by established neighbors Bryant Family, Dalla Valle, and Chappellet, the Krupps’ low-yielding vines today produce fruit sought after by some of the valley’s most iconic wineries such as Paul Hobbs, Cain, Caymus and Realm to name just a few. Krupp Brothers wines are extremely low productionbut undoubtedly the best wine that the vineyard has to offer. —Kevin Boyer Kevin Boyer has 16 years of wine experience, most recently as VP of beverage for Ruth's Chris Steak House, inc. as well as being co-founder of the critically-acclaimed boutique Napa Valley winery, BOYANCI.
