Embracing the challenges of coastal viticulture, Flowers Vineyards has consistently produced wines that reflect the unique terroir of their estate. From the maritime breezes that cool the vineyards to the diverse soils that shape the grapes’ character, each element contributes to the distinct profile of Flowers wines.

Over the years, the winery’s reputation has soared, with winemaker Chantal Forthun leading the charge in crafting wines of finesse and elegance. Flowers Vineyards has embraced a minimalist winemaking philosophy, allowing the grapes to express their inherent qualities with minimal intervention.

Today, Flowers Vineyards and Winery stands as a benchmark for cool-climate California wines, consistently earning acclaim for their nuanced, site-specific expressions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The history of Flowers Vineyards is one of vision, dedication to the land, and a commitment to producing wines that capture the essence of the Sonoma Coast.
