Stagecoach Vineyards Oakville: world-famous wine estate
Located in Oakville, Stagecoach Vineyards, is a world-famous wine estate that might be called the last frontier of the Napa Valley – a wilder, more rugged vineyard, fragrant with wild herbs and dotted with rare native plants. It is here that the Krupp brothers, Jan and Bart, have excavated over a billion pounds of basalt, andesite, and tufa boulders to create this remarkable property. Over the past two decades, 600 acres of vines have been planted in 175 uniquely individual blocks among four designated regions.
The land and the vision are so dramatic that each day the Krupp team is prepared for some kind of new discovery - reclaimed from tenacious growth of chaparral and sagebrush; excavated of a billion pounds of volcanic rock; and endowed with a plentiful water source found against the advice of seasoned geologists. Stagecoach Vineyard is a marvel of nature and human ingenuity.
