Michael Browne, one of the founders of the iconic Pinot Noir producer Kosta Browne, launched CIRQ as a “passion project” in 2009. Working from a hilltop estate in the heart of the Russian River Valley, he focused on creating single vineyard Pinot Noirs of exceptional quality and distinction. “CIRQ was born from raw inspiration to craft something special that thrills and entices the senses,” said Browne.  “It was an opportunity for me to do what I love, to create wines of uncommon breeding from exceptional vineyard sites and connect people to those places.” From the beginning, production was tiny and only available through a mailing list.

CHEV was founded in 2020, fueled by nostalgia: It was inspired by childhood memories of watching his father, a craftsman and woodworker, fabricating projects that sprang from his imagination. Browne wanted to bring the same dedication and attention to detail to the crafting of the finest Russian River Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Both CIRQ and CHEV are now part of Browne Family Wines; Browne, who was a circus performer as a child, hopes to bring the same balance, finesse and fun to the craft of winemaking.
