Brown Estate is a private family owned and operated estate winery tucked into the hills east of Rutherford in the Napa Valley. With a dream of owning a family farm, our parents put down roots in the Valley in 1980. Between 1985 and 1990 we planted a total of fifty acres of vineyards that include Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay. Through our first decade of farming the land, we sold all of our fruit to a variety of small local wineries. In 1996 we produced our first vintage of Zinfandel under the Brown Estate label, and subsequently have expanded production to include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, our Chaos Theory blend, and Petite Sirah. This year we celebrate our 30th year in the Valley and our fifteenth crush. As we consider these milestones, we take great pride in the fact that every aspect of our business remains under direct family control. Read less

Brace yourself - this wine is seductive. Confident, sexy, long and lean, its pale straw appearance evokes a splash of summer sun. Transcending the grass and gooseberry qualities typical of the varietal, our 2009 sauv blanc unfurls a nose of gardenia, honeysuckle, mandarin, nectarine, limestone, fig, and beeswax, and delivers a power-packed yet delicate palate of tropical fruit and white flowers. Perfect acidity with a zesty yet sensuously round texture, this wine is refreshing and simply delicious. Drink now. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
