Most wine lovers recognize the name Michael Browne when it was synonymous with Kosta Browne. Today we introduce you to his new project CHEV sparked by Michael’s love and appreciation for old school workmanship. From classic cars to vintage clocks, CHEV pays tribute to bygone days when artisans hand-wrought their wares to expert precision. They use the same approach in their winemaking—grapes exquisitely grown by master farmers, curated from renowned sites, and refined to delicious detail in the family shop. Crafted in a style all its own, CHEV is unbounded by region, born from exceptional vineyards, near and far.
“AT THE END OF THE DAY, MY QUEST IS SIMPLE — TO CRAFT THE MOST DELICIOUS WINE POSSIBLE.”-Michael Browne
The 2018 Chev Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is our Leaderboard wine this week. In the glass, you'll catch notes of cherry cobbler, spice, aged black tea and vanilla. On the palate, this Pinot is vibrant and silky soft. Black cherry and juicy red plum with some fresh earth and a little tobacco.
