All of our practices are sustainable, taking into account the environmental, social, and economic implications of each decision we make.  A few examples of our sustainable approach: using permanent cover crops to prevent erosion; planting site-specific cover crops to address nutrient and vigor needs; building insectaries, owl boxes, and bluebird boxes to host pest predators; conducting beneficial insect releases; practicing conservative irrigation; and using local restaurant food waste for compost.

Under Jan Krupp’s direction, Stagecoach is a vineyard that thrives on innovation.  Jan is always interested in new ideas, Viticulturist Gabrielle Shaffer has the moxie and drive to put a plan in action, and Vineyard Manager Esteban Llamas is by nature a creative problem solver.  From investing in advanced weather-station technology, new varieties, and clonal trials to improved trellising, irrigation, and pruning styles, the Stagecoach team is always looking for a way to take viticulture to the next level.
