Flowers Vineyards and Winery is a few different things. It’s one of the pioneers in the Sonoma Coast for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, a top 10 most popular restaurant brand in the country, an absolute critic darling and easily one of the most beautiful places on planet earth. Seriously, look at the pictures– I dare you to find a pretty vineyards anywhere.
When they first were starting out almost 30 years ago, Joan and Walt Flowers had a simple goal: to make exceptional wine that captures the wild beauty of the land and the spirit of the Sonoma Coast. Needless to say, they’ve accomplished all that and more.
Their 2013 Estate Pinot Noir is a quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir even if you might not know that from the critics reviews. Granted, I didn’t taste it in 2014 or 2015 when these folks did, but I tasted it in 2022 and can tell you it’s beautifully structured, intricately woven, silky smooth and wonderfully harmonized and it’s a hell of a bright, easy sippin Pinot Noir with a little bit of age to it. A beauty now and for the next two to three years, I’d predict.

Fragrant with scents of rose petal and pinecone, this is clean and brisk. Lifted rather than layered or complex, it’s ready to decant for herb-stuffed trout baked in parchment.
90 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Shy and reserved, this cool-climate wine opens coyly with a burst of spearmint on the nose, evolving into layers of flavor steeped in rhubarb, black cherry and tea. Soft and lilting, the wine’s finish conjures thoughts of strawberry cream.
