From its beginning in 1978, Flora Springs Vineyards & WInery has been a labor of love for the Komes and Garvey family. As we now celebrate nearly five decades of winemaking from our Napa Valley estate vineyards, we made the decision to dedicate ourselves to a new, small winery that focuses on crafting wines that best represent the quality we are known for.

The highly experienced wine making team is led by Winemaker Enrico Bertoz, buttressed by the discerning palate of Proprietor John Komes, honed by decades of tasting and listening to customers. John and the Komes Garvey family’s commitment to quality is reflected in Flora Springs’ major investments in vineyard technology, winemaking equipment, and oak barrels. The family and the team work together to consistently over-deliver on wine quality. Balanced wines of power and restraint, cellar-worthy yet ready to enjoy, and always delicious; this is both the legacy and the promise of Flora Springs.

For nearly five decades our family has worked and lived among our own estate vineyards in Napa Valley, and farming our land sustainably has always been a top priority and more than that, a way of life. With over 200 acres of vines, we are laser focused on leaving the land, soil and surrounding habitat healthier and more vibrant than we found it.

Our family’s goal is to deliver on every aspect of our business, particularly when it comes to the quality and consistency of our wines. As farmers and winemakers, our dedication to quality begins in the vineyards and continues through every aspect of winemaking.

Enrico Bertoz


With roots in the Friuli wine region of northern Italy, it’s no surprise that Enrico Bertoz decided to pursue a career in winemaking. But it wasn’t until his early 20s that he set his sights on California. The U.S. had been on Enrico’s radar earlier, as he had relatives who lived in New York. When he turned 24 he made the leap, packing his bags and moving to southern California to work as a winery intern in Santa Barbara. Following his mentor’s advice to explore more of California’s viticultural bounty, he moved to Napa Valley in 2005.

After working for several years at different Napa wineries, Enrico learned of an opening at Flora Springs. Making the move was an easy decision. “I saw that Flora Springs had its own vineyards strategically placed in some of the best appellations of Napa Valley,” he says. “I come from an Old World perspective, where the grower and the winemaker are one entity, there’s no dichotomy. That’s what attracted me.” He joined the winery in 2008.

Today, Enrico works side-by-side with General Manager Nat Komes to craft wines from Flora Springs’ estate vineyards. Although Friuli is not known for Cabernet Sauvignon, Enrico has come to love the varietal. “It’s a chameleon,” he says. “It’s fascinating to see how it expresses itself in different appellations and vineyards.
