Dec 03, 2014 , Brown Estate , Brown Family

Wednesday December 3rd 

4:30-7:30 

No reservations necessary 

Please join us Wednesday, December 3rd, any time between 4:30-7:30pm, when we welcome dynamic siblings, David and Coral Brown, to our wine bar for our annual Brown Estate Extravaganza! David is the Winegrower and Coral is the Director of Brand Management. They, along with their sister Deneen, who is the President, run Brown Estate all in the family.

 

By now, most of you know the story but for those new to Brown here is a little background. In 1980, Bassett and Marcela Brown purchased land in the Chiles Valley AVA of Napa Valley that had been neglected for a decade. The family resurrected the property and in 1985 planted nine acres of Zinfandel which was well suited to the unique microclimate in their corner of Chiles Valley. Over the next few years they added more vines and thanks to their dedicated farming efforts the Brown Vineyard developed a reputation as a high quality Zinfandel source for top notch Napa Valley producers like Green & Red and T-Vine. Encouraged by the overwhelming demand for their grapes, the siblings decided in 1995 that it was time for them to make wine under their own label.

 

In 2000, the Browns debuted their first two vintages from 1996 and 1997 at ZAP, and the rest, as they say, is history. Those wines made a huge splash at Zinfandel Advocates & Producers and literally put them on the wine map. We have been proud supporters of every Brown release since we opened our doors in 2003 and eagerly await their new releases, and especially this wonderful night of Brown goodness every year.
