Canepa Koch Wine Cellars is a partnership between Mark Canepa and Neil Koch. Together Mark and Neil have over 25 years of wine industry experience. Mark and Neil have known each other since 2004 and both were recruited by Seguin Moreau (Cooperage in Napa Valley) and they both took Sales positions. They quickly realized that if they combined their skills and resources they could launch something exciting. Their goal is to create wines that are well rounded, enjoyable and affordable. Their first release is the 2009 “the dude” a Napa Valley Red Wine.
We are excited to share our wine and passion with you.
