Keefer Ranch is one of the longest tenured properties in our Single Vineyard Series. Located in Green Valley, this mystical site is characterized by cool conditions and a distinct marine influence. Kosta Browne began working with this site in 2005, in collaboration with the legendary Marcy Keefer.


Sourced from the 20-acre parcel that we purchased in 2013, this is a sophisticated and graceful wine that has balanced notes of raspberry and blackberry, while energetic texture and high-toned flavors throughout the palate represent classic KB personality.
