“It was just two of us, we didn’t know what we were getting into.” So begins the “Stories” section on the Kosta Browne website – and, probably the most understated of all winery start-up declarations. Today, as any competent pinophile knows, Kosta Browne is one of the most envied AND revered pinot producers in California. But, how’d they get that way? Well, therein lies our story.

Join us as we talk with Dan Kosta about Kosta Browne’s history and the future of one of the most successful starts in the wine business.
