Winemaker Michael Browne’s vision for CIRQ first took shape in 2009 when he followed his passion to make delicious wines from the most exceptional vineyard sites in the Russian River Valley. The goal was to provide Pinot Noir enthusiasts with wines of uncommon breeding that delight their senses and connect them to these special places. Having dreamt of one day owning their own vineyards and estate winery, Michael and Sarah Browne founded Browne Family Wines and have started their journey of the next chapter of CIRQ Estate. CIRQ and his new brand CHEV are the sole focus of Michael’s professional life and he’s eager to pursue his hands-on, small-lot approach in every fine detail, from the vine to the bottle. This collectible lot celebrates Michael’s past, present, and future pursuit of the highest quality Pinot Noir imaginable. Michael puts his heart and soul as a winemaker into each bottle and the results are truly works of art.
