I invite you to join me for one or more of the events I'm hosting in the coming months. Please reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule one of my "Real Wines with Virtual Eric" private Zoom tastings with your friends, customers, or colleagues. I also have an excellent lineup of "open to the public" Zoom tastings listed below. These get-togethers are an opportunity to connect with old friends and to introduce new friends to my wines. Riley is joining me for most of the Zoom tastings. Starting in late July I will be getting back out on the road and Riley or Kit will be joining me for many of the events. I have limited the number of markets we are in so I can visit each of them and spend time with our friends and customers. Please check my events page frequently to keep apprised of my upcoming events and visits.
Join me and Kit on Friday night September 25th at 6:30 pm for a fun night of Flanagan Wines, food, and friendship at Forsyth Country Club. Theta Chi "President for Life" James Bullock will be in attendance along with some other great friends from the Winston-Salem area. The Club is creating food stations to pair with each of the five Flanagan wines I'm bringing. We'll enjoy a great night of wine and casual dining! This event is limited to 25 guests. The cost of the dinner and five wines is $95 per person all inclusive. Please click HERE to reserve. (Please wear attire appropriate for a country club setting...no jeans)

Because we can't host you in person this year I am creating a fun virtual FC event. I'm sending out steaks from my friend Tim Nugent who is the proprietor of a premium beef purveyor in Green Village, New Jersey. I grew up riding my bike past Tim's business and it is great to be able to offer you these amazing steaks almost 50 years later! In addition to the steaks I'm also sending you two specially selected bottles of Flanagan from my cellar. I'll customize my selections to reflect what I think you'd like best. You'll get two big NY Strips (or you might call it a Kansas City) that should feed four people and two bottles of great wine. Everything including the shipping is on me.
The friendship and support of my Founder's Club members has always been the heart and soul of my wine business, In a challenging year I want to say "Thank you!" and create a chance for us to share a meal as best we can. Please email me to confirm your participation and shipping information.
Please join us on 10/10/20 at 2pm PST for our 16th Annual Harvest Party. Due to the double whammy of COVID and the fires we will be holding a virtual Harvest Party Via Zoom. Grab a couple of bottles of your favorite Flanagan wine, put on what you would wear to my party if you were here, and let's all connect on line!
If you would like to participate in the Zoom call please click HERE to register.
We always donate 100% of all ticket sales to the Sonoma 4Cs. We understand that this year, with a virtual event, things are different.
The Sonoma County 4Cs operates 12 preschools for 600 children from lower income families in Sonoma County. 4Cs also provides child care vouchers and meal vouchers to families in need. They are on the front line of supporting lower income families in Sonoma County. If you would like to make a donation to the Sonoma County 4Cs please click HERE.
If you previously purchased a ticket and would like a refund please email me at email@example.com. The fires have placed an extra strain on the 4Cs so if you are okay with your ticket purchase still going to the 4Cs I know they would appreciate that very much. No action is required from you to have the 4Cs receive the donation from your ticket.
Thank you all for your patience and flexibility in what has proven to be a truly challenging year.
Join us for the release of our greatest wines. For each ticket purchased we'll send you the set of the four wines we would have featured at the lunch: 2018 Flanagan Chardonnay Platt Vineyard, 2018 Flanagan Viognier Bennett Valley, 2018 Flanagan Pinot Noir Platt Vineyard, and 2016 Flanagan Merlot Bennett Valley. This will be a great tasting experience! The cost for this tasting is $230 plus tax for the set of four wines. (Wine value is $333 per set and I'm including complimentary shipping). Please click HERE to reserve.
Wine Reviewer Ken Hoggins brings something different to the table. He has assembled a panel of wine aficionados who taste, and rate, the wines together. This unique approach keeps the palate of a single person from dominating and provides a deeper level of feedback on the wine. Ken and his panel have tasted many of our Flanagan wines and have selected four of them that they would like to feature on a Zoom Call.
Join Ken and several of the members of his panel on Wednesday 10/21st at 4 pm PST for a tasting of: 2018 Flanagan Chardonnay RRV, 2018 Flanagan Beauty of Three Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, 2017 Flanagan Syrah Bennett Valley, and 2018 Flanagan Syrah Bennett Valley. The 2018 Beauty of Three has never been offered in a tasting before as it is featured exclusively in top restaurants. Either Estate Wine Director Isabelle Mort will join Ken and the panel for the call or I will. I am providing the set of four wines for the tasting at 50% off and including complimentary shipping so the cost is $115.50 plus tax per tasting set. Limit one per household please. Please click HERE to order. Please order by Thursday 10/15th.
