Rudolph C. Kopf
Kobrand Corporation was founded in 1944 by Rudolph C. Kopf, who during his half-century in the wine and spirits industry became one of its most experienced and respected members.
Kobrand proudly takes to market a distinguished portfolio of hand selected brands representing virtually every major wine region of the world and its finest specialty spirits. Family owned since its founding, Kobrand attributes its success to a single guiding principle that describes the people, products, and relationships behind it: quality.
This commitment to quality woven through Kobrand’s evolution also drives its strong commitment to innovating compelling and relevant new products.
Today, the wine portfolio is a collection of New and Old World gems including Cakebread Cellars, Sequoia Grove, St. Francis, Louis Jadot, Champagne Taittinger, Sassicaia, Craggy Range and the Ports of Taylor Fladgate, Fonseca and Croft. Newer additions to the portfolio include Résonance from Oregon, AIX from France, Buglioni from Italy, Norton from Argentina, Montes from Chile, and the Joto Sake Portfolio from Japan.
The spirits portfolio showcases innovative category pioneers, timeless benchmarks and a collection of superior specialty craft spirits. Brands like Alizé, Lucano, and Larressingle Armagnac exemplify the portfolio’s breadth, with alluring cordials, back-bar essentials and exotic cocktail mixers as well as best-in-class indulgences.
A portfolio like this grows out of the decades-long experience of passionate professionals who seek out the star viticulturists, winemakers, distillers and brewmasters who are its key contributors. This is Kobrand today: a story of continuing tradition, a story of strong commitment, a story of innovative excellence… a Story of Quality.
