Our Estate Series wines were born from our journey to find world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay sites in California and our commitment to sustainable farming and vineyard management practices. 
.

“The Bootlegger’s Hill Chardonnay has yellow apple, orange zest, honey, and apricot. With rich texture and memorizing balance, this wine is full of style.”- Winemaker Julien Howsepian.

Cerise Vineyard has emerged as one of Anderson Valley's most acclaimed vineyards. It is located on a beautiful hillside reaching 1,600 feet with exposures that push the vines to their limits (not a single block is on flat ground). Its unique elevation and exposure place it directly in the fog layer, resulting in significant diurnal swings.
.
The distinctive wines produced from Cerise eloquently combine a thought-provoking wildness with soaring flavors and a soulful palate.

Our Estate bottlings are some of the most sought-after wines in our portfolio, embodying everything we have learned about Pinot Noir and Chardonnay over the past quarter-century.
.
Sitting around 750 feet in elevation, above the fog line, and surrounded by redwood and fir trees, lies our Bootlegger’s Hill Vineyard.
.
“The Bootlegger’s Hill Pinot Noir is bursting with dried cranberry, strawberry, and wild sage; this wine has a lively texture across the palate. With fantastic depth and concentration, this is classic Kosta Browne.” - Winemaker Julien Howsepian.

Thank you, @pressdemo, for featuring our winemaker, Julien Howsepian, in your recent article, 'Do you know the Sonoma County winemakers behind these iconic brands?'
.
"I had a passion to stay connected with an identity, but I also had the willingness to stay open-minded and a desire to continue pushing the boundaries of what Kosta Browne can do. I humbly believe Kosta Browne is one of the greatest American Pinot Noir producers, so the opportunity to make wine here was a dream come true." -Winemaker, Julien Howsepian

At KB, we use a wide variety of vessels for fermentation and élevage for our Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Each component contributes to a wine differently and is integral to winemaking.

As we reflect on the past year and look ahead to the next, we find ourselves filled with gratitude. This year we celebrated the 25th anniversary of Kosta Browne and released the inaugural vintage of our Burgundy Series, two events that have marked significant milestones in a journey that began with a tip envelope and a dream in 1997. These achievements could only have been made possible with the help of our dedicated team, expert growers, chef partnerships, and you, our members, whose passion for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay inspire us daily.

We are honored to share that our 2020 Kosta Browne El Diablo Russian River Chardonnay was placed in @James.Suckling's Top 100 Wines of 2022 list to wrap up the year! "A great Chardonnay, with such depth and power. Phenolics across the palate that bring you down and anchor you deep in the wine. Full-bodied with lime and lemon peel. Lemon tree, too. Wonderful depth. Superb. 98 Points. A must buy. Drink or hold."

For the final savory dish from our 25th Anniversary Dinner, we enjoyed the rarest of all Kosta Browne wines: the 4-Barrel Pinot Noir from our Winemaker Series. Originated by our founders as the ultimate ‘thank you’ to our longstanding members, the highly coveted 4-Barrel is comprised of the best four barrels of the vintage, blended in perfect harmony. As a special treat, we poured both the 2005 and 2014 vintages, illustrating how gracefully this wine ages. Such a duo deserved an equally intriguing dish; a lamb loin with a tomato and onion tart in a salsa verde.
.
Alternating flavors of cherry-plum fruit and high-tone basil weaved together to form a complex wine that evolved with each sip. Lamb, a natural partner for herbaceous flavors and deep-berry fruit, elicited a glimpse of zest from the salsa verde, while the tomato and onion enhanced piquant fruit notes in the wine. It was an experience in layered nuance, one we were honored to share on such a noteworthy occasion.

Many of our vineyards are just miles from the Pacific Ocean. The close proximity results in relatively stable temperatures with little diurnal swing (temperature fluctuation between day and night), allowing the grapes to ripen slower, adding more nuance and flavor in the glass. Additionally, vines above the fog line have an extra ripening benefit—they can enjoy sun exposure all day but not overheat with the maritime breeze! To learn more about the vineyards we work with, see our link below.

#EmployeeSpotlight - Meet Jasmin Rambaud, KB Membership Supervisor.
.
Jasmin’s passion for wine started long before she was able to sip! Growing up, not one but both of her parents worked in the wine industry. As a little girl, you could find her riding the ATV with her dad in the vineyards, who could do anything from pruning to bottling. After high school, she continued this legacy by studying Enology and Viticulture at the SRJC, later earning her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Wine Business Strategies from Sonoma State University. Most recently, she passed her level 2 WSET with distinction and plans to complete level 3 in 2023.
.
Jasmin started her wine career at Sebastiani Vineyards, where she gained experience in their hospitality center conducting tours and tastings. She even had a hand in their lab and bottling line. Then, in 2018, Jasmin and her husband welcomed a beautiful baby boy and decided to spend the next year in France, enjoying parenthood with incredible wine and French cuisine. Yet, as beautiful as this time was, she couldn’t wait to get back in the Sonoma County wine game, and lucky for us, she chose KB!
.
When asked what she loves most about the wine industry, she responded, “The wonderful opportunities it provides those who share the same passion. Sonoma Wine Country, in particular, will always have a special place in my heart. It is where I was raised, met my husband, and started my family.”

Jasmin’s wine education background, family history, and shared passion for wine make her an excellent team member, but above all, her positivity and compassion for our members shine the brightest.

Inspiration for the fourth course of our 25th Anniversary Dinner was time and elegance. With a bit of age, our 2012 Rosella’s Vineyard Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands was paired eloquently with squab and roasted sunchoke in a raspberry hazelnut sauce.
.
The squab was seared, then roasted, and served as a gastronomic backdrop that allowed the other ingredients to shine. Hazelnut was the perfect complement to the sunchoke—eliciting a mellow warmth while bright raspberry notes illuminated throughout. The delicate balance was a genuine delight to experience.
.
Opening library vintages over the holidays can provide an excellent opportunity for exploration and reflection with those near to you. Not only can you reminisce about the history of the bottle or how you acquired the wine, but you can enjoy its transcendent evolution of character.

Pruning is essential to the grape-growing process as it sets the stage for the upcoming season. In the next few weeks, our vineyard team will be back at work, removing last year’s canes and spurs to ensure each vine has just the right number of new buds to produce fresh grapes with nuance and intense flavor.

The third course from our 25th Anniversary Dinner was an exercise in subtlety exalted. The mortadella tortelloni with whipped burrata, pistachio buttercream, and beet powder was exceptionally paired with our Burgundy Series Beaune Premier Cru Pinot Noir.
.
The tortelloni was made from red fife, heritage wheat, prized for its versatility and hardiness. The mortadella extracted savory notes from the elegant Pinot, which melted the richness of both burrata and butter. Beet powder complemented the cherry-plum fruit, while hints of pistachio nuttiness heightened lingering mocha notes on the finish.
.
At home, our Beaune Premier Cru can pair similarly with pistachio pesto pasta with mortadella, burrata, and a prosciutto crostini, or go vegetarian and try a smoked eggplant with ricotta and pistachios!
