2nd segment of this weeks Show: Cult status Kosta Browne of Sebastopol.... is all about Pinot Noir.... "What else is there?!" - Michael Browne and Dan Kosta
 
Flavorful, intense Sonoma Coast and Russian River Pinot Noir is what Kosta Browne co-founders Michael Browne, Winemaker, and Dan Kosta, Director of Sales and Marketing, are passionately devoted to. They recognized a niche opportunity, both from a gastronomic function and grower-winemaking perspective, back in the early 1990s as co-workers at John Ash & Co when they took note of the more wine-knowledgeable clients in the restaurant ordering limited Pinot Noir to enhance their dining experience.
