Our People

It all started over 20 years ago with just two guys, quickly joined by a third partner. It did not take long, however, before a few more hands were necessary, and the team began to grow.

Today, Kosta Browne includes a dedicated group of individuals obsessed with Pinot Noir and outstanding quality - in everything we do: from making wine, tending to vineyards to ensuring your bottle safely arrives to your home. If you have a question, please don’t hesitate to let us know by contacting us directly.
