EVENTS

We invite you to join us at one or more of the events we are hosting in the coming months. For us, these get-togethers are an opportunity to connect with old friends and to introduce new friends to our wines. We love hosting tastings and dinners. We have limited the number of markets we are in so we can visit each of them and meet the people enjoying our wines. We work with world class restaurants around the country, and we hope you have the opportunity to enjoy our wines at your favorite spots. Please check our site frequently to keep apprised of upcoming events.

Join us on Saturday 6/6th at 4pm PST for an epic vertical tasting of my Bennett Valley Syrah. I'll feature vintages from 2015-2018. This is a unique site on the very steep slopes of Bennett Mountain. We planted the first vines on this property in 2001 and 2002, and, I believe this is the top site in Sonoma County for Syrah. Our first vintage of Syrah was 2006 and ever year since then has produced a world class wine. As a special addition, top New York Somm Cameron Nadler (from the iconic Polo Bar) will join us for the call. I'm providing the wines for this tasting at 50% off and shipping is included. The shipping window for the east caost is closed for this event.

Venue: Flanagan Wines
Contact: Eric Flanagan
Phone: 707-331-0617

Zoom in on Saturday 6/20th at 4pm PST for a fun trip back to 2015.  We'll start with the 2015 Flanagan Chardonnay RRV and the 2015 Flanagan Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard. These wines are both drinking really well and show that well made new world Chardonnay can age gracefully for 5-10 years. (I believe that some sites, like the Platt Vineyard, can age for 20 years). We also revisit our 2015 Flanagan Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast and our 2015 Flanagan Pinot Noir Sonoma Stage Vineyard.  All of these wines are library wines, low on inventory, and not available for purchase except to participants in this tasting.  I'm providing the wines for the tasting at 50% off and including complimentary shipping in order to make the tasting accessible. The cost of this tasting is $129.50.  Limit one set of tasting wines per household. Please click HERE to order. Please order by Tuesday 6/9th to ensure timely delivery.

2011 Vintage Tasting

Date: Wed, Jul 8, 2020
Time: 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Venue: Flanagan Wines
Contact: Eric Flanagan
Phone: 7073310617

Join me on Wednesday 7/8th at 4 pm PST for a return to 2011 and a tasting of my 2011 Red Wines. 2011 was the year that Kit and I were married and holds a special place for us. This will be the last time we taste our 2011 Flanagan Pinot Noir Three Starrs Vineyard. We'll also try my 2011 Cabernet, 2011 Serenity Way Tete de Cuvee Bordeaux Blend, and my 2011 Syrah. 2011 was a cooler vintage and it is fascinating to taste these wines as they acquire some bottle age. Like 1998, this is a vintage where top estates made great wines...and those wines were backward in their youth and got better and better with age!  I especially love the 2011 Syrah which is a classic! I'm providing the wines for the tasting at 50% off and including complimentary shipping so the cost for the tasting is $229.50 plus tax. (Limited to 20 people and one set of tasting wines per household).  Please click HERE to order. Please order by Friday 6/26th to ensure timely delivery.
