Frozen branches in winter

ISSUE #18: Winter 2018

I can hardly believe that 2018 is coming to an end. This has been such a transformative year for our family welcoming our son Brooks Bitner and watching Elliott become the loving, protective (albeit slightly dominant) sister we knew she was born to be. Brooks is turning one this month, and with his first words and first steps on the horizon, I have to remind myself to slow down and appreciate every moment with my growing family. Earlier this year, we added another new addition and a different dream was realized in opening our Browne Family Vineyards tasting room in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. Your support of this space has been felt immensely and I cannot express my gratitude enough. I know my grandfather would be proud of everything we have accomplished and I look forward to sharing so many exciting new projects in the coming months.

Thank you for making 2018 a year to celebrate! I’ll be popping a cork of one of my favorites, the always-enjoyable, bone-dry Gruet Sauvage to toast all of you, our friends and our partners, on New Year’s Eve. I cannot wait for more shared successes in 2019.
