Michael Browne

Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra, and John Wayne

This brings me the greatest joy…

I was in a circus

The top 3 things on my bucket list are…

  1. To meet the Dalai Lama
  2. Stay in the Lincoln Bedroom at The White House
  3. Swim with a Great White Shark outside of a cage

I chose The Barlow because…

In 2010, we were looking to relocate to a production space that would accommodate some growth. We were on the verge of moving the winery to an industrial park in Windsor. Almost a week before signing, I met Barney. He walked up to me, and started describing his vision for The Barlow- a place where producers and consumers could create direct relationships. The project would emulate the very dynamic that allowed Kosta Browne to be so successful, as a business. I can vividly remember thinking, “We need to change direction, and The Barlow is where Kosta Browne needs to be!” What an incredible journey with Barney and his team; it was a risky move on all our parts, but I’m very proud of our decision. We are incredibly grateful to be a part of The Barlow community!
