A family endeavor that epitomizes three generations of hard work, dedication and a team effort, Flora Springs Winery and Vineyards is perched in the Mayacamas in the farthest northwest corner of Napa Valley’s Rutherford appellation – an extremely enviable location in California wine country. Founded in 1978 by Jerry and Flora Komes, Flora Springs was initially intended as a retirement project, but was destined to become a lifetime passion for son John Komes and daughter Julie Garvey and their families. Working side-by-side, John and Julie produced the first two vintages, and were joined by winemaker Ken Deis in 1980. In 1984, the team set out to make a truly unique wine by hand-selecting the highest quality lots from their estate vineyards. Using a blend of three Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot – Flora Springs created Trilogy, one of the original Meritage wines. After the inaugural release, Julie and a group of vintners founded the Meritage Association, which has helped to boost the international reputation of American Bordeaux-style blends. Now a Napa Valley benchmark, Flora Springs’ Trilogy represents meticulous sustainable and organic farming practices, along with the evolution of wine style created by the Komes-Garvey families.
