ABOUT THE WINE

Kosta Browne’s undeniable success is the result of years of diligence, exploration and an obsession with Pinot Noir. Beloved by wine critics and Pinot Noir lovers in equal measure, the wines of Kosta Browne consistently capture the spirit of Sonoma County Pinot Noir, and are a celebration of the vineyards, people and winemaking style that makes this a world-class region.

Some of the exciting new vineyards Kosta Browne has worked with in recent years center on Freestone, a small town in the Sonoma Coast AVA where the fruit from this unique lot was sourced. Out there, Pinot Noir takes on a brightness and essential quality that shines. In 2016 the team picked in multiple passes and fermented in a range of vessels: from stainless tank to wood and concrete open tops, concrete egg and amphorae.
