Rat Pack Palm Springs Wine Dinner

November 20, 2022

Only 100 guests, get your tickets now

Step back in time to the crazy, cool glamour of the Rat Pack era when Frank Sinatra and his gang were regulars at Las Vegas’ Golden Sands Hotel and Casino and Palm Springs was a vacation playground for the jet set.

Hosted at Twin Palms, also known as the Frank Sinatra House, in the tony Movie Colony-El Mirador neighborhood of Palm Springs, this mid-century modern masterpiece is where Sinatra entertained the most famous celebrities, musicians, sports figures and politicians of the day.

A Flora Springs event not to be missed. The Komes family will roll out the red carpet as they host a coursed dinner meticulously paired with Flora Springs wines. Nat Komes will also debut the brand-new Flora Springs sparkling wine and promises a new twist on its presentation.

Limited to only 100 guests, we invite you to an unforgettable evening with the current and bygone ‘kings of cool,’ music, entertainment and surprise Rat Pack appearances.

DATE: Saturday, November 19, 2022
TIME: 4 pm – 9 pm
LOCATION: Twin Palms, aka The Frank Sinatra House, 1148 Ease Alejo Road, Palm Springs, CA
GUEST LIMIT: 100 people

Create Your Own Flora’s Five Cabs & Five Cuts Feast

May 8, 2019

When John Komes bottled Flora Springs’ first Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – the Rutherford Hillside Reserve in 1989 – it became a benchmark for Napa Valley Cabernet, bringing awareness to the concept of site-specific wines. Since then Flora Springs has enhanced its Single Vineyard Program, and today we offer five elegant and powerful wines that reflect the small vineyard sites and even individual blocks in which they are grown – wines so outstanding they deserve to be bottled on their own.

The idea for “Flora’s Five Cuts and Five Cabs” dinner—which has been one of our most popular events since its inception four years ago—is a nod to John’s early days of selling these Single Vineyard Cabernets. Back then he developed a successful winemaker dinner pairing each Cabernet with a specific cut of premium beef. He found that the words used to describe the texture and tenderness of a steak enhanced the understanding and enjoyment of Cabernet. In true John fashion, he was well ahead of his time, and his innovative concept is still relevant today.
