Halloween is always a cause for celebration at Flora Springs. After all, with one of the few remaining Napa Valley Ghost Wineries in St. Helena, we are constantly reminded that there are phantoms and spirits who walked here before us.
For the last decade we’ve paid tribute to our ghostly history by producing special Halloween wine bottles for our Wine Club and Mailing List Members, giving them exclusive access to Single Vineyard wines crafted with our Napa Valley estate-grown Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Learn more about our Wine Clubs to ensure an allocation of these limited, popular Halloween wines.
Our 2018 Halloween Releases
Our Halloween wines from Napa Valley are some of Flora Springs’ most anticipated annual releases. This year we offer two wickedly good Single Vineyard bottlings from our own estate vineyards in St. Helena, each with custom Halloween wine labels.
What’s a Ghost Winery?
Our Napa Valley Estate is home to one of the few Ghost Wineries in existence.
Drink in Peace Merlot
This hand-etched and painted bottle features traditional Day of the Dead artwork that glows in the dark! The exclusive limited-edition coffin box makes this an ideal gift for the Halloween wine enthusiast.
Black Moon Magnum
Twice the size of a standard wine bottle, this magnum is ideal for entertaining or Halloween wine tasting. Hand-etched and painted, this collectible Cabernet Sauvignon is truly a work of art.
All Hallows' Eve Cabernet Franc
Each year Flora Springs General Manager Nat Komes seeks inspiration from album covers, comic books, children’s book illustrations, and artists from all areas of expertise, to create a new one-of-a-kind Halloween wine label for our All Hallows’ Eve. Skeletons, witches, pumpkins and black cats have all found their way onto our estate-grown Napa Valley Cabernet Franc release. The unveiling of the new design to our loyal Wine Club Members is the highlight of Nat's year, as he truly wants to create the most exciting wine for his favorite holiday.
Historical Halloween Wines
For many years we partnered with Virginia-based artist Wes Freed, best known for his CD covers for the Drive-By Truckers. Freed created custom labels for our first five Ghost Winery bottlings, illustrating mischievous, otherworldly scenes of our estate in Napa Valley. Sourced from our family's estate vineyards, these age-worthy wines are a testament to Flora Springs’ longstanding Halloween tradition.
When you work at a Ghost Winery you're always looking over your shoulder. That creak in the floorboard, those murmuring voices around the cave's bend, the whoosh of air that comes out of nowhere – are they real, or imagined? It's even worse during harvest, when our winemaking team is a little on edge as they work late into the night. Who can blame them for getting a little spooked? Harvest Witch is a toast to the haunting legends and ghost tales that come to life this time of year. Is the mysterious witch on the label a force for good, or evil? We're not sure, but we don't want to be the last one in the cellar to find out!
Each year we magically turn our artful labels into fun merchandise, poster art, skateboard decks, etched large formats, and collectibles. You may also enjoy an exclusive tasting of our seasonal, winery-only Halloween wines, including our limited-production Ghost Winery Malbec, stop by the decorated tasting room in St. Helena, you can't miss the giant skeletons waving as you drive up Hwy 29.
