Dear Friends,


The vines are coming to life once again in the Russian River Valley as we march towards the 2018 vintage. Another growing season is upon us and this one has me feeling very thankful. I am thankful for your continued interest in my wines and for the role that Kosta Browne has had in my success. CIRQ and Kosta Browne have been inextricably linked operationally since CIRQ’s beginning in 2009. And now, I’m taking the plunge to have CIRQ operate as its own entity. While I continue to perfect the next act for CIRQ, I have partnered with the trusted Kosta Browne customer service team to help you secure your allocation of the 2015 vintage.

As always, I look forward to sharing our latest releases and the 2015 vintage is no exception.

Treehouse and Bootleggers again produced bold yet refined wines that I hope bring you much joy. Lastly, I am elated to share that you will be able to continue to enjoy wines from these vineyards from CIRQ and Kosta Browne in the 2016 vintage and from then on from the Kosta Browne winemaking team.

I look forward to sharing more with you all on Act II for CIRQ. To learn more about the Treehouse and Bootleggers vineyard and the release process, please visit our Q&A page.


All my best,
Michael Browne
