Ken Brown Wines
Wine Label: Chris Chapman
Ken Brown Wines is a small family winery focusing on Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley. Launching the Ken Brown label in 2003 with his wife, Deborah, pioneering winemaker Ken Brown produces very small lots from some of the region’s most highly acclaimed vineyards including Cargasacchi, Clos Pepe, La Encantada and Rita’s Crown Vineyards.
The wines are produced at their winery in Buellton at the gateway to the Sta. Rita Hills appellation, and most lots consist of 250 cases or less. Total annual production is only about 2,000 cases. Ken works with growers to hand select vineyard blocks for their program. They also produce limited bottlings of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Syrah.
