Kevin Brown of Siren Song Winery
With a father as a chef, Kevin Brown grew up in California around fine food and wine and has always been fascinated by pairing the two. But for most of his career, he’s channeled his creativity to the software industry, starting up many companies focused on data analysis. With inspiration drawn from wine experiences around the world, Kevin made his first wine in 2007. He and his wife Holly fell in love with Lake Chelan and bought 7 acres of vineyards on the south shore in 2010. Reaching back to 11th grade mythology lessons, they named their winery Siren Song and opened tasting room doors in 2015. Wine, food and music come together at Siren Song, with 9 weeks of dinner concerts on a stunning site with a Mediterranean feel inspired by Provence.
It’s very clear from his wines that Kevin believes wine can change your life. Behind each wine is a story about a life changing moment in Madrid, Paris, Rio, and on and on. Kevin makes 10 to 12 wines each year, mostly from grapes grown in the vineyards he and Holly own in Lake Chelan, Walla Walla, and Mattawa. The Mattawa vineyard will eventually be planted mainly to Zinfandel, the varietal Kevin thinks should be Washington’s signature one. Kevin loves experimenting with blends, always with food pairings in mind as he selects varietals. Learn about his experiments, stories and much more in this interview.
