A Kinship of Passion

Zac Brown has always been a creator, and learned the importance of devoting himself to his craft early in life. He applies that passion for quality not only to his music, but to all the creative endeavors he undertakes. Zac’s drive to find inspiration in our world is second only to his desire to share it with others. When he and winemaker John Killebrew met, they instantly recognized in each other a common passion for creating unique experiences that reflect quality and originality. Their collaboration is Z. Alexander Brown; big, bold wines of uncommon finesse and character.

“The intrigue of wine comes from the philosophy that guides it. For Zac and me, that means allowing the grapes to be honest, unrestricted expressions of vintage and origin—in others words, “uncaged.” Our winemaking style is perfectly matched to the spirit of  Z. Alexander Brown. It reflects our pursuit to create wines that offer bold, assertive flavors, good balance and supple tannins while capturing the richness of California’s North Coast."

Savoring the
Good Things

“What I remember most from childhood, apart from singing the moment I could talk, was always being in my Grandma’s kitchen and watching her cook. I speak the language of food and truly love it. Bringing good food and wine together with family and friends is a natural — it’s in my blood."
