Kosta Browne

Kosta Browne Kosta Browne Winery was founded in 1997 by Dan Kosta and Michael Browne. Our goal from the beginning was to produce world-class Pinot Noir from grapes grown in our home of Sonoma County. We are fortunate to live in a region which produces some of the finest Pinot Noir grapes on the planet. All of our wines are hand-wrought. From hand-picked, hand-sorted fruit to our gravity-fed bottling system, we make every effort to ensure the most gentle and highest quality production methods. Dan and Michael see every cluster of grapes coming into the winery and personally inspect each bottle of wine waiting to be shipped. From the very beginning we were determined to produce fine Pinot Noir and make a living at it. Our dream was to make enough wine to support ourselves and eventually have our own winery. The dream is coming true. Through generous support of a few who share in our dream and an incredible amount of work, we are able to bring our wines to you.

  Pinot Noir Rosé
Our 2005 Rosé is comprised of 100% free-run Pinot Noir juice from our finest vineyards which include Kanzler, Koplen, Cohn and Amber Ridge with a touch from Garys Vineyard and Rosella’s Vineyard. The wine was fermented at a cold temperature in stainless steel to retain the fresh fruit component. This is the perfect wine for spring and summer consumption and we recommend that it be enjoyed before winter 2006.
  Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Our 2004 Russian River Pinot Noir is a blend of four vineyards; Cohn (20% name recently changed to Benovia Vineyard), Koplen (35%), Amber Ridge (30%) and Bly (15%). All of these vineyards lie in the middle to northern Russian River Valley. The style is deep and rich with a velvety texture that is prominent from start to finish. We recommend cellaring this wine until 2007 with additional cellar time being beneficial.
  Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Our 2004 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a blend of four vineyards; Kanzler (36%), Guisti Ranch (17%), Pleasant Hill (17%) and Dutton-Manzana (30%). All of these vineyards lie in and around Green Valley, which is one of the coolest regions in Sonoma County. This region produces exotic Pinot Noir, which is deep, complex and full of dark cherry, berry and clean earth components. We recommend cellaring this wine until 2007 with additional cellar time being beneficial.
