Krutz Family Cellars a producer of handcrafted wines. Our boutique winery produces a Napa Valley “Stagecoach Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon, a Santa Lucia Highlands “Sleepy Hollow” Chardonnay and an Anderson Valley Pinot Noir.
In 2003 Krutz Family Cellars was born. Weighing in at about 60 cases total between three separate varietals (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and a Grenache/Syrah blend) Boutique or Small doesn’t even come close to describing production. Microscopic would be more accurate. That was some of the most fun I’ve ever had…at work too! I thought, “Damn, if I can have this much fun at work, I’m in!” In 2004 I produced 170 cases total (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon) and for 05, which is the current release, a total of 450 cases, and in barrel for 06 I have about 900 cases. Still, at this level, I would say that it is microscopic production as compared to other wineries’ production.
