5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Your wine is 100% Viognier, from fruit grown in the Stagecoach Vineyard
  • It was fermented in 100% new French oak and aged on its fermentation lees
  • A modern take on Viognier, reminiscent of the best Rhône whites
  • This wine is a very limited selection from our Bride blend

Krupp Brothers has traditionally produced the "Bride" bottling. Historically a combination of Rhone varietals, we are updating it to a pure Viognier blend. Our Premiere Napa Valley lot is a selection of the oak fermented portion of the blend. It is 100% new oak, fermented in 100% new French oak and aged on the fermentation lees. A pure Viognier that will be part of the final blend.

Winemaker, Julien Fayard

Growing up on his family's small vineyard in the Provence region of France, Julien has not missed a harvest since he was 16.

He trained in Bordeaux, working for the esteemed First Growth Château Lafite-Rothschild and Smith Haut Lafitte where he oversaw vineyard management and developed his winemaking skills.

After moving to Napa in 2006, Fayard began working alongside Philippe Melka as Director of Winemaking at Atelier Melka. There he honed his winemaking skills all the while learning more about the multiple climates and terroirs that make up the Napa Valley.
