Robin Cooper
Behrens Family Winery

In 2003 Robin Cooper, a native New Yorker and successful executive recruiter in the world of Wall Street, came to the Napa Valley to work harvest for Behrens Family Winery as an intern and to have a “life experience.” She has remained ever since. In 2006, the owners of the same winery decided it was time to start letting people come to visit and tapped Robin to create a hospitality function for them. Since then Robin has been the Director of Hospitality and Customer Relations for Behrens Family Winery, representing the critically acclaimed wines of Les Behrens and Lisa Drinkward.

These tiny production red wines produced on Spring Mountain in Napa are sourced from special low yielding vineyard sites from some of the best growers throughout the Napa Valley as well as Sonoma County, which result in a partnership with growers obsessed with producing extremely high-quality fruit.

Join Les, Lisa and Robin on a voyage of discovery up the lower Danube River, aboard AmaMagna, Europe’s grandest river ship. Sail up the Danube to Budapest, visiting Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia and Hungary.

On board Robin will conduct two tastings and a paired dinner with the wines of Behrens Family Winery. More importantly, we’ll see a side of Europe not visited by most Americans, with tremendous historical sites and great value to boot. There are two optional land tours before our Lower Danube cruise. We begin with a fabulous 3 night stay in Istanbul, then concluding with a 2 night program in Budapest.
