A couple of early presents... long awaited Rita's Crown Pinot Noir and sensational Radian Chardonnay!

After months of being sold out, Rita's Crown Pinot Noir is back with this gorgeous new release from the 2017 vintage. Situated at an elevation of 600 to 950 feet above the valley floor, Rita's Crown is particularly exposed to coastal fog and cool marine breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean. This beautifully structured Pinot Noir offers vibrant aromas of juicy plum, red cherry and boysenberry complemented by hints of shiitake mushroom and rhubarb. The texture is rich and round with dark plum and dried cherry flavors enhanced by a touch of wild game, cinnamon and dark chocolate on the finish. The wine’s balanced profile assures graceful development and superb cellar potential. Only 242 cases made. Learn more or purchase here.

One of the appellation’s most picturesque and coldest vineyards, Radian Vineyard is located in the southwest corner of Sta. Rita Hills, unsheltered from direct exposure to cold winds and marine fog from the Pacific Ocean. Exquisite and multi-layered, this Chardonnay offers rich aromas of ripe pear, marzipan and lemon curd with a touch of pineapple and nutmeg. The flavors are vibrant and luscious with hints of Golden Delicious apple, honey and lime zest. The wine’s racy acid is gracefully balanced by a delicate, yet luxurious mouthfeel and culminates with a long, bright finish. Only 133 cases made. Learn more or purchase here.

After a hiatus last year, Ken Brown Holiday Open House is back! We're offering our 10% case discount on purchases of only three bottles or more. Wine Club members receive 25% off all wines (up from the normal 20%). Online and phone orders receive the discount too! These deals are valid December 4, 2021 only. Ken will be on hand from 1:00 to 3:00 pm to sign bottles. Come celebrate with us and let's kick off the holiday season together!


Given the delays many freight carriers are experiencing, we wanted to get an early start on holiday orders. We strongly recommend you order right away for Thanksgiving delivery and no later than December 6 for Christmas arrival. UPS is not guaranteeing delivery times this season, which means we will be unable to do so as well. We want to do all we can to ensure your wines arrive in time for celebrations and gift giving, but we'll need your help by ordering early! Visit our Wine Shop here.

As in past years, we are more than happy to make recommendations, ship directly to your personalized gift list and package your wines with festive holiday tissue and personalized messages at no additional cost. Feel free to reach out to John at john@kenbrownwines.com or call 805-688-9400.
