2019 Flowers Chardonnay Sonoma Coast Bright citrus notes, white flower, nuances of dried apricot and hints of flint. The palate of this 2019 is energetic with acidity and tension balanced with flavors of orchard fruit and almond, finishing long and bright.
Sourced from a small selection of family-owned vineyards on the Sonoma Coast as well as our Camp Meeting Ridge estate. Each vineyard is carefully chosen for its farming practices, coastal in¬uence, and fruit standards.
Nearly 30 years ago, Flowers Vineyards & Winery pioneered the growing of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the rugged coastal ridges of the extreme Sonoma Coast. Joan and Walt Flowers had a simple goal — make exceptional wine that captures the wild beauty of the land and the spirit of the Sonoma Coast. This passion drives everything we do — farming responsibly, harvesting by hand, using 100% native fermentation, and crafting wine with minimal intervention. Our unwavering commitment to creating distinctive wines that capture the spirit of the Sonoma Coast has been the bedrock of our success, and will continue to guide us for years to come.
Our story begins in the early 1980s with Joan and Walt Flowers, owners of a nursery in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. On their biannual trips to California to buy seeds and learn about west-coast plants, they would always carve out time to pursue their budding interest in wine. Before long, their passion grew into a dream of owning a vineyard and using their immense agricultural and farming knowledge to grow exceptional wine.
In 1989, Joan and Walt came across a brief advertisement in the back of a wine publication for a mountaintop piece of land on the first ridgeline of the Sonoma Coast. This was uncharted territory for farming grapes, and despite being warned of the risks, they visited the property. The drive there took them along the scenic Highway 1, down miles of narrow switchbacks with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.
