About the Rutherford Dust Society
The Rutherford Appellation was designated in 1993 and the Rutherford Dust Society was founded in 1994 by growers and vintners in tribute to the legacy of our grape growing and winemaking forebears. Since the late 19th century, the growers and vintners of Rutherford have played a significant role in the development of Napa Valley as a world-class winegrowing region.

The Rutherford AVA produces some of the most critically-acclaimed wines in Napa Valley, and the Rutherford Dust Society, of which Flora Springs is a member, holds exclusive wine tasting events throughout the year.

Premiere Napa Valley

February 22, 2020

Flora Springs is excited to participate in Premiere Napa Valley 2020! This is the time of year when all eyes are on the Napa Valley wine industry. Not only is Premiere Napa Valley America’s original and most prestigious barrel tasting and auction, the event offers a first taste of the new vintage (2018) personally presented by Napa’s top winemakers.

More than 500 trade and media guests will attend the main event on February 22 and hundreds more will be in town for the week’s activities. Like other vintners who participate, Flora Springs has created a one-of-a-kind wine lot just for this auction. While this event is for members of the Trade only, you can take a look at our lot. Who knows? Maybe a restaurant or wine shop near you will be the winning bidder on our lot and make it available to you! You can also click here to find out where to buy Flora Springs’ Premiere Napa Valley wines from years past. No cellar is complete until it contains at least one bottle of Premiere Napa Valley wine.

Sixteen Spirits Historical Ghost Winery Tour & Tasting – SOLD OUT!

November 3, 2019

This event is sold out. If you would like to be placed on the wait list, please contact us at (800) 913-1118 or info@florasprings.com.

The Flora Springs estate in St. Helena is home to one of the few remaining ghost wineries in Napa Valley, and one of the very few that have been revived as a working winery. We’ve often wondered about the history of our 19th century building. If its thick stone walls could talk, what would they say about this historic winery’s former inhabitants and passers-through? This longstanding intrigue was the inspiration for our Ghost Winery Malbec, an estate-grown wine we release each year at Halloween. It is also what led us to find out for ourselves if there are spirits still lingering in this place.

Introduced in 2018, our Ghost Winery Historical Tour and Tasting is one of Napa Valley’s most unique wine experiences. On select days each month through October, we partner with a team of paranormal investigators from Napa City Ghosts & Legends for a fascinating walking tour of our Ghost Winery accompanied by a tasting of our Ghost Winery Malbec and other Flora Springs wines. On this trip back in time, we meet the spirits who can’t quite tear themselves away from the place they once inhabited. Past encounters have included a Scottish barrel-maker with a taste for whiskey and a 1920s flapper who didn’t want the party to end. Our investigators tell us there are sixteen souls who still roam our old stone winery, and they are anxious to make themselves known. This is a fascinating, thought-provoking tour for believers and skeptics alike. And no matter which way you lean, you’ll enjoy our Ghost Winery Malbec, a wine we make in honor of our ethereal history.

Price: $75
Wine Club: $60
Limited to 12 guests.
