Venturing into new territory with its first Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, this exclusive release is for your eyes only. This is a deep, rich cherry and raspberry scented Pinot that jumps out of the glass with intensity not seen prior. A fuller and more voluptuous version of Flowers “hands-off” approach to winemaking, it starts a new chapter in a distinguished history for this Burgundian-inspired institution. We are excited to offer this gem to you first and thank Flowers for allowing us to share their newest pride and joy!
The folks at UC Davis said it couldn’t be done. When Walt and Joan Flowers saw a newspaper ad for 321 acres of land on the Sonoma Coast, just 2 miles from the Pacific Ocean, they were immediately intrigued, but took pause. Only a few families – the Hirsches and the Bohans – were successfully growing grapes in such a cool part of California. Thankfully the Flowers ignored the ‘experts’ and planted Camp Meeting Ridge in 1991, so named for its history as an indian encampment and later, a site for religious retreats. Today Flowers is known for making some of the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in America.
