Flora Springs Winery is a family-owned winery located in the Napa Valley. JohnÂs parents, Jerry and Flora Komes, bought the winery over 20 years ago as a retirement project, one that soon became a passion enveloping their entire family. They are self-taught winemakers, learning the craft and business of wine with little formal education. Says John, ÂWe werenÂt trained to be vineyardists or enologists, but we had a driving curiosity that propelled our wine education.Â
With eight separate vineyards spread over 600 acres Flora Springs Winery produces a number of distinct wines, each speaking of a unique location. ÂThe soils, the vines, the exposure, and the viticulture all conspire to make something unique,Â John says. ÂVineyard designated wines provide the experience of enjoying wines from the ground up.Â And while they make wines from several varietals they are most well known for their outstanding reds, which will be heavily featured at this wine makerÂs dinner.
White Orchid Chef de Cuisine Roger Morris created the wine dinner entrÃ©es to complement the Flora Springs wines. The wine dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. with a reception, Amusement of the Chef, featuring Soliloquy, 2002.
