Pinot Talks

THE SOMM JOURNAL [Feb/March, 2020: Pgs. 47-49]
“Transformative Talks: Exploring the intersection of Californian and Burgundian pinot noir, Kosta Browne takes its seminars on the road.”


Pinot Talks is an international seminar series that explores Pinot Noir through the lens of California and Burgundy. Each event includes a blind tasting of both California and Burgundian Pinot Noirs with a distinguished panel of Master Sommeliers, Masters of Wine, Winemakers, and Wine Writers. The goal is to explore the similarities and differences in the wines from each location, with a focus on quality, winemaking and the modern challenges of each region. Our hope is that after each event, the audience will walk away from this experience enlightened, perhaps surprised and enthusiastic to continue the dialogue of California Pinot Noir among the industry at large.

“Experience California Wine Country in Style at These 9 Effortlessly Luxurious Vineyards” [March 2021]


A visit to Kosta Browne will result in two immediately beautiful surprises. First, you’ll wonder aloud how you never knew that the iconic cult label was produced in a building in plain sight at The Barlow, a game-changing outdoor mecca of food, wine, spirits, and craft stores in Sebastopol, California. The second is that once you’re quietly ushered into the serenely peaceful and immaculate greeting space that Kosta Browne has painstakingly designed, you’ll be handed a glass of seriously profound Champagne. Champagne in California wine country? That’s just the beginning of the “Observations Series” tasting experience.
