In 2013, we sold our first harvest to Michael Browne and Dan Kosta of Kosta Browne Winery. We felt fortunate to have this tremendous start. During the next six harvests, we were made to feel that we were part of a family telling an important story about Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
Last year, Michael and Dan moved on. Although we were told by the new owners that we would have a contract for 2019, both the abundance of fruit in 2018 and the March 2019 flood of the Barlow-located winery put them in a position where they could not accept our grapes.
Now, late in the game, we find ourselves hoping to sell our 2019 fruit. We’ll be fine if we don’t. We know how lucky we are to be in that position. But we’d hate to see this beautiful fruit go to waste.
Professional winemakers, don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like to discuss purchasing our Pinot Noir this year or in future years. You can find more info here and throughout the website. And please help us spread the word.
We’re looking forward to the next chapter.
