Meet Winemaker, and your special guest, Brian J. Kosi
Brian Kosi, Winemaker for Atalon Winery is a master blender known for crafting age-worthy wines, working exclusively with Cabernet Sauvignon from many prestigious Napa Valley appellations. His first vintage with Atalon was 2009, where he brings over 15 years of winemaking experience to the team.
A graduate of the University of California – Davis, Kosi’s career includes positions at Acacia Vineyard, Opus One, Plumpjack Winery, Beaulieu Vineyard and Freemark Abbey. Winemaking is part of his family history: Kosi’s grandparents owned a vineyard and winery in Slovenia prior to World War II, and his family still makes wine there today. Brian’s goal is to continue the tradition at Atalon of crafting well-balanced wines that are food friendly and offer solid aging potential.
