How would you rate Brown Estate?
First introduced to Brown Estates wines at a wine tasting at Martha's Vineyard in 2011. We were hooked! We live in MD and have been ordering from them for 5 years. I love their Zinfindels and Cavs. The Betelgeuse white wine is so light and crisp. We plan to visit them this summer for a tour and tasting. Can't wait, I'm sure I'll find a few other favorites!
Perhaps the one reviewer went to a different Brown Estate winery. Brown is a hidden gem and I think the family is happy to keep it that way. David Brown, the winemaker, makes about 4 Zinfandels, some blended, some single vineyard and all are revelations. You have just never tried Zins that taste quite like a Brown. David also makes a Cabernet, a Cab Zin blend called Chaos Theory, a Petite Sirah, a Chardonnay and a couple desert wines in very small batches. Their marketing is indeed terrific, but true to the family and the wine, and the events we have attended have been singularly enjoyable. Call for an appointment. You won't be disappointed.
Beautiful wine, beautiful place and great people. Brown is largely producing Zinfindel but they are also making some great Cabernet, Petite Syrah and some wonderful whites. Don't miss the Duppy Conquerer Dessert Wine! Note that the winery is small and you must have an appointment to visit. Also, if coming from central Napa, plan on a bit of a drive as Brown sits at least 15-20 minutes east of Silverado Trail.
Brown Estate is one of the great Napa valley wine stories - a family on a comparatively small vineyard turning out some of the best Cabs and Zins you'll find anywhere. Talking of finding anywhere, they can be difficult to track down so it's more than worth visiting if you're in the area. Unlike the regular tasting room factory experience, you great the real deal here - one of the best.
A Great Marking Idea...
But then you have to drink the Wine!
Don't fall for the scam!
Was not sold on the place by the pitch I heard. However after noting they were getting great reviews of their Zinfandel's. I decided a visit was in order. This place is now on the recommend list. First of all the hospitality of the people is warm and enjoyable. They make you feel like your a part of the family and they you have just dropped back in for a visit. Then there is the wine, smooth and delightful with all kind of notes and choices, its the kind of place if your in the mood for zin's your going to find some to call your own.
My friends and I had the pleasure of attending the first annual Brown Estate wine and car show. It was a great event filled with great wine, people, food, and beautiful cars. I wanted to take the time to thank the Brown Family for what turned out to be a great day.They are very passionate about their wines and equally about their members and friends. I am not one to sit and write reviews but could not sit back and not. Thanks again
This was the best tasting experience ever. At Brown's we felt absolutely comfortable and were treated like family in one of the most intimate settings. They welcomed us graciously and were extremely proud and knowledgeable of their products. I am very excited at what they've accomplished thus far and wish their family the best of luck.
