Kosta Browne

The story of Kosta Browne charts the age-old path of the “American Dream”, via Pinot Noir: the small winery that evolved from a “tip-envelope” project to the producer of some of northern California’s most coveted wines. Kosta Browne was started by Dan Kosta and Michael Browne, two friends working at a local Santa Rosa restaurant who saved enough tip money to make their first barrel of Pinot Noir in 1997. Full of passion but short on capital, Michael developed relationships with key growers in Northern California, while Dan, along with the help of a third partner, Chris Costello, worked the market and sold the wines. The quality and popularity of Kosta Browne Pinot Noir increased rapidly, and in 2011, the 2009 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir was named “Wine of the Year” by Wine Spectator. Proud storytellers of the California coast, Kosta Browne focuses on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from vineyards in the Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast, and Russian River Valley down to the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Rita Hills.
