ABOUT THIS WINE
Betelgeuse is an icebreaker, a spirit lifter, and an elegant addition to your dining table, picnic basket, or poolside party. It is especially brilliant during the summer months but shines brightly year-round. This is the perfect starter wine in both senses of that term whether for newcomers to the world of wine or seasoned enthusiasts looking for a well-made yet affordable aperitif to kick off any meal or gathering with panache.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
In 1980, the family acquired land in the hills east of Rutherford in the Napa Valley. They were farmers first, and farmers they remain. In 1995 they decided on the strength of the fruit to make wine under their own label. The following year the family produced the first vintage of zinfandel, and along the way we have added cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, petite sirah, and the occasional dessert wine.
In 2010 the Brown family celebrated thirty years in the Napa Valley and Brown Estate's fifteenth crush. Over the years the farming philosophy has not changed: Our fifty acres of vineyards are planted amidst 450 acres of roughneck wilderness that they strive to tend rather than tame – from the occasional inconvenient honeybee hive in the winery to the prickly star thistles in the vineyards that are a part of their ecosystem.
