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!

Premiere Napa Valley 2019

February 28, 2019

Flora Springs was excited to be part of the Premiere Napa Valley 2019 wine auction, which brought in close to $3.7 million this year.

Held each February, Premiere is a who’s who of the wine world, with wineries, wholesalers and retailers coming together to celebrate Napa Valley wines. It’s a wonderful time to connect with our trade partners throughout the country, and Winemaker Paul Steinauer and National Sales Director John Schulz, who represented us at the event, were pleased to see friends and colleagues from as near as California and as far as Florida.

Our auction lot, which we dubbed IV Appellations, was a 100% 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena and Howell Mountain. Here’s what Paul says about the wine: “Because it was sourced from four unique single vineyards the wine imparts a great deal of complexity; melding red fruit characteristics from the valley floor in Oakville with black fruit characteristics from the other sites makes for a multi-dimensional flavor profile.”

The five-case lot brought in $10,000. Flora Springs also participated in a PNV Lot Preview event put on by the Rutherford Dust Society, which was attended by over 150 people. We poured our 2016 Rutherford Hillside Select, which will be released in April. Although it’s still young, guests commented on how approachable it is even now.
