Flora Springs Chardonnay 3-Pack #ChardonnayDay

#ChardonnayDay: Join the 7th Annual Global Celebration of the Chardonnay Grape

After thirty years of crafting world renowned wines, the Flora Springs name has become synonymous with perfectly balanced Napa Valley Chardonnay. The legacy began when our inaugural vintage in 1978 was awarded a gold medal at the Orange County Fair. A few years later our status of gold was bronzed when James Laube selected Flora Springs as one of his “First Growth” producers of Chardonnay in his book California’s Great Chardonnays.

Presenting Our New Look: A New Era, Forever Iconic

April 28, 2015

New Look Flora Springs Labels 2013 Napa Valley Merlot

We are excited to announce the debut of our new label with the release of our 2013 Napa Valley Merlot.

The new logo, labels and packaging are designed to more clearly convey key messages about our Napa Valley estate’s core values.

“While critical elements of the original design have been retained, the new package tells the Flora Springs story in a clearer, more compelling way,” says Nat Komes, third generation vintner and general manager of Flora Springs. “Through imagery and words we’re communicating what makes Flora Springs special — the values that have been important to our family since we established our winery estate in 1978.”

The new logo features an updated, classicized image of Flora emerging from a pool of natural springs, holding aloft a cluster of grapes and supported by the tagline ‘Napa Valley Family Estate.’

“Flora has always been our icon, created in honor of my mother who inspired the founding of the winery,” says John Komes, Flora Springs’ founder, president and proprietor. “The new image underscores Flora Springs’ role as a Napa Valley grape grower as well as winemaker, while the water at Flora’s feet symbolizes the natural springs which nourish the vineyards surrounding our estate.”

The new labels will be introduced with the 2014 vintage white wines and 2013 vintage red wines as they are released throughout 2015.

We’ve dedicated countless hours — and poured our hearts — into developing our new labels. View our latest video for a behind-the-scenes look at the intensive process.

We look forward to hearing what you think! Share your thoughts on Facebook or Twitter – or contact us directly.

Celebrate Earth Day with Flora Springs

April 17, 2014

The Komes and Garvey families of Flora Springs Winery & Vineyards came to the wine business as farmers first. Our love of the land influences everything we do.

From the beginning, we have farmed our vineyards using sustainable practices. Not only do these practices make for good neighbors, healthy vineyard workers, and an ecologically-sound place to live and work, they also make for what we think are some pretty outstanding grapes.

On Earth Day this April 22, we hope you’ll celebrate with sustainably grown and produced wines from Flora Springs – and to share the story of Flora Springs and sustainability with your friends and loved ones.

From going solar (our panels cover all of the energy needed for our red wine production) to water conservation efforts, learn more about how we work with nature and farm responsibly.
