Region: Russian River Valley, California
Dan Kosta and Michael Brown had a dream and saved up tip money for two months to make it happen. They bought half a ton of Pinor Noir and founded Kosta Browne in 1997. Twenty-something years later and they're heralded as one of the top Pinot Noir producers in California. Their Chardonnay is also something to write home about. This wine is bright and expansive, with a savory lemon and honeycomb note. The Russian River Valley is one of the finest places to grow Chardonnay in California, so you'll definitely want to try this wine. Trust us, these two really know what they're doing.
