On our last trip to Napa, we had to make sure we dropped in to check out this relatively new tasting room. The new winery was not quite complete yet, but we can’t wait to visit there the next time we're in town!!
its label! We were also anxious to try their Black Bart Syrah, and their "big boy," the M5 Cabernet. Needless to say, those did NOT disappoint either!

Krupp Brothers Tasting Room (Downtown Napa)-
Prior to the sale of their Stagecoach Vineyard, (which was recently purchased by Gallo), we were lucky enough to have experienced the Krupp Brothers' tasting tour that takes place at the very top of the vineyard. Since then, they have been busy! They opened a tasting room in Downtown Napa, and relocated the winery just off the Silverado Trail in Napa.
The Merlot was tasting just amazing, we were also digging the Synchrony, which is a Cabernet dominant, Bordeaux blend. But the standout was definitely that M5 Cabernet. It’s a beast! True to a Napa Cab, big fruit and tannins, and just....wow. We are so excited about our stash!
Alas, we only had limited time to spend as it was the end of our trip and it was time to get to the airport. We enthusiastically thanked Jon for his time and hospitality, and off we went. Until next
We knew going in that we were really excited to try their new Rosé, which is called The Damsel. Not only was it fantastic, but so was its bottle and even
on the premises, which was SO cool!
In the past, we have bought quite a few bottles from them blindly, because their wines are just so consistently amazing; we just can’t help ourselves! We do have some patience though as those bottles

The tasting room is a good size room with a long bar, and several high top tables throughout. It’s light and airy, and just has a great vibe to it. There is even a private tasting room in the back. And the wines....heaven!
