EVENTS

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 eric@flanaganwines.com 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.

 

July 2020

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 shipping is included, 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. Riley will send a Zoom link prior to the tasting.
