Wine Dinner with Byron Kosuge
April 27 at 7 PM
We first encountered Byron Kosuge's pinot noir a few years back. We were entranced then, and we've been entranced by every vintage since!
Byron grew up in Davis, California. The first fifteen years of his wine making career were spent making his mark, as winemaker at Saintsbury in Carneros. He left Saintsbury in 2001 and has spent the last 16 years making extraordinary Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, both under his own label and as a consultant for others.
"I could never be a “rock star” winemaker. I’m most comfortable knocking around in the vineyard or the cellar, trying to improve my craft, and turning out modest amounts of interesting, expressive, and, hopefully, memorable wine. The kind of wine I want to drink myself."
We disagree. Sorry Byron, you're a Rock Star!
Come hear the music. Byron Kosuge will be at Stage Left Thursday, April 27 at 7pm, to host a dinner with his wines and our great food. If you love Pinot Noir, you should really be here.
