Founded in 1995 by siblings Deneen, David and Coral Brown, Brown Estate produced its first Napa Valley zinfandel in 1996 after the family had been farming grapes and selling them to established winemakers. It is the first and only Black-owned estate in Napa Valley.

The 2021 Chaos Theory has a dark garnet core with a ruby rim and an intense bouquet of ripe red fruits, dark cherry, plum, and licorice. Secondary notes of leather, toasted marshmallow, wild herbs, and florals, followed by hints of caramel apple, Asian spices, heavy cream, tobacco, and cocoa nibs. On the palate, it is ripe, savory, and concentrated with silky mouthfeel, zesty acidity, and sweet tannins.  Made of 50% Zinfandel, 40% Primitivo, 5% Petite Sirah and 5% Tempranillo.

From the owners of Brown Estate : 'In 1980 our parents purchased an abandoned ranch in the eastern hills of the Napa Valley. They rehabilitated the crumbling homestead and planted viniferous grapes — which for a decade we farmed and sold to local winemakers. In 1995 we kids decided to make our own wine. We 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 broader exposure to a 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, and in 2018 we established our House of Brown sister label. We appreciate your interest in our labor of love!'
