A rich yellow gold in color, the House of Brown Chardonnay has a nose of pineapple, green mango, and lemongrass. Time in the glass reveals honey-drizzled peach and Meyer lemon. Bright, tight acidity with subtle sorbet-like concentration of fruit and a trace of minerality on the palate. Medium-bodied with silky mouthfeel and ultrafine tannins.
HOUSE OF BROWN is a second label offspring of Brown Estate, Napa Valley’s first Black-owned estate winery. As our brand has attracted a terrifically diverse consumer base over the last 25+ years, a vibrant community and dynamic culture have coalesced in our ecosystem. HOUSE OF BROWN, created to expand access to the Brown wine experience, is an homage to our Come one, come all (come correct!) ethos.
Easy drinking anytime-anywhere wines, always in season. Produced by women of color, certified sustainable, vegan-friendly.
About Brown Estate
Established the Brown Estate label officially in 1996 when we harvested what would become our first bottling of Brown Zin. In January 2000 we debuted our first three vintages at the annual ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates & Producers) Grand Tasting in San Francisco. Fast forward to August 2021… when we bottled our 25th vintage.
In the meantime our business has grown slowly but surely as our brand has gained increasingly broad exposure to an extraordinarily diverse audience thanks to word of mouth, both IRL and on social media. To make our wines and hospitality experience more accessible, in April 2017 we opened our Brown Downtown tasting room on the resurgent First Street corridor in the heart of downtown Napa.
