Vino Las Vegas Speaks with Winemaker Ken Brown at the World of Pinot Noir
We had the opportunity to meet Ken Brown a few years ago when we helped him crush and hand sort his Pinot Noir. It was a very enlightening experience to help such a legendary winemaker such as Ken. He has been recognized as one of Santa Barbara County’s pioneer winemakers . In fact, he was one the first winemakers to see the potential of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Santa Barbara County in the 1970’s and was also the first winemaker to introduce the Syrah , Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc to Santa Barbara County.
Scott of Vino Las Vegas caught up with Ken at the World of Pinot Noir and spoke with him about his background and current releases from Ken Brown Wines.
