There are two primary acids found in grapes naturally - tartaric and malic acids. "TA" or "titratable acidity" relates to pH, but they measure different things. TA measures the amount of acid, and pH measures the strength. Typically the pH range for wines is between 3 and 4. By monitoring the acidity through fermentation, it allows the winemaker to create beautifully balanced wines.

We've been crafting Chardonnay since 2009, beginning with our One-Sixteen, Russian River Valley, Chardonnay, and it's been an exciting journey expanding the portfolio ever since. Depending on the vintage, we may make up to six different Chardonnays with unique and expressive traits reflective of terroir.

What's your favorite KB Chardonnay?

Like many of California’s most celebrated vineyards in the iconic Russian River Valley, Bootlegger’s Hill was once an apple orchard and what we consider a secluded treasure. Surrounded by redwoods and firs, the cool climate and well-drained Goldridge soils of this esteemed site keep crops small, adding depth, elegance, and alluring flavors to both our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

In the cellar, concrete is used as a natural insulator that has temperature-stabilizing capabilities, which makes for a gradual fermentation. It's also ideal for storing and aging wines and doesn't impart flavor to the wine like an oak barrel does. #toolsofthetrade

#Employeespotlight Sera Bybee, KB Concierge
.
If we’re technical about it, Sera Bybee has been in the wine business since she was 9 years old. Raised on an organic vineyard where the Pinot Noir flowed freely, Sera was a natural addition to the Kosta Browne team.
.
Born to photographer parents in San Francisco who decided to move to Sebastopol, California, for an easier life in the countryside, she remembers vividly tasting the fresh grape juice just off the vine as a child. At age 16, she is drawn abroad to France to pursue the language, and then at age 19 to Montreal, Canada (McGill University), but after 6 years abroad, the draw of the quiet life back home was too strong to ignore.
.
No matter how far or for how long she travels, Sonoma County will always be home. She’s inspired by the community for its creativity, respect, and its understated aura where farmers and celebrities co-exist with musicians and restaurateurs alike. For her, it is not just the wine; it’s the food, the culture, the stunning nature, and the genuine-hearted people that make Sonoma County inescapable.
.
Sera enjoys riding shotgun in her boyfriend’s professional drift car, spending time in the kitchen with friends, and both she and her Italian Greyhound/Terrier mix, Stanley, are big lovers of cheese and champagne.

We recently had the incredible opportunity to partner with  @Kiawe_Outdoor in Maui, Hawaii, run by @shugood, Advanced Sommelier. For one evening, a small group dined on a private hilltop outdoors while enjoying a 5-course meal cooked over open flames, complete with Champagne and rare wine pairings from our cellar. Thank you to @Kiawe_Outdoor for an unforgettable evening and to all who attended.

Thank you to the talented photographers who captured the night @Rachidphoto and @mirandatillinghast.

We use a variety of barrels in our winemaking program, each imparting subtle nuances to the wines. French oak barrels, as pictured in this illustration, tend to be much tighter grained and impart intricate flavors and firmer but silkier tannins.

The 2019 season was windy in the Sta. Rita Hills, with heavy fog that didn't break for roughly two weeks, and aided in the grapes' optimal phenolic development. As captivating as it is delicious, this wine has a robust and dynamic cool factor, with intense fruit and spice notes continuing throughout the palate, building to a complex and polished finish. Beautifully articulated layers of cranberry, pomegranate, and Rainer cherry leap from the glass while the palate unfurls power, with a rush of intense fruit balanced by the complex texture.

El Diablo Vineyard - Planted in 2008, this striking site has an average elevation of 500 feet. This tightly spaced vineyard encourages competition between the vines for a fixed amount of nutrients, resulting in reduced yields and exemplary quality.
.
We create a single vineyard designate wine from El Diablo that is released in fall, and fruit from this vineyard contributes to our One-Sixteen, Russian River Valley, Chardonnay that is released in spring.

Inspired by the spirit of music in our cellar, we wanted to enrich the sensory tasting experience by bringing the “Sound of Wine” to life. For each 2019 Appellation Series wines, we commissioned a talented team of musicians to write a custom track based on our winemaker Julien’s innovative way of describing our wines through the lens of music.
.
“There is a heartfelt and powerful feeling to the Sonoma Coast that reminds me of county and blues music – classic guitar and a memorable melody brings me back year after year.” – Winemaker, Julien Howsepian

Thank you, @Departuresmag and @JCristaldi, for featuring Kosta Browne in your recent article, "Experience California Wine Country in Style at These 9 Effortlessly Luxurious Vineyards." 
.
"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..." See our #linkinbio to read the full article.
