Kosta Browne acquires vineyard in Green Valley
Kosta Browne winery in Sebastopol has bolstered its new estate program by purchasing its first vineyard, a key 20-acre block from the highly acclaimed Keefer Ranch located in the Russian River Valley appellation outside Graton in the Green Valley.
“We have been sourcing Pinot Noir from the Keefer Ranch since 2005, and it has been a gem in our portfolio, having designated the wine since that vintage,” says winery founder Michael Browne. “It’s just such an incredible Green Valley site, and the meticulous care given to this ranch by Marcy Keefer and her crew truly shows in the wines.”
Marcy Keefer continues to farm her remaining 30 acres, selling these grapes to her existing winery clients.
“I couldn’t be happier with this arrangement with Kosta Browne,” says Marcy Keefer. “They have always been the ideal winery partner, so I’m confident they will be incredible stewards of this piece of vineyard.”
