Founded in 1978, Flora Farms has been a family-owned and operated Napa Valley winery committed to producing sustainably farmed and handcrafted wines. Along with creating award-winning wines for the last four decades, the legacy of the Flora Springs estate has a fascinating history. The property is home to one of Napa Valley’s famed ‘Ghost’ wineries. ‘Ghost Winery’ is a term used to describe those that were built between 1860 and 1900 and fell into disrepair in the early 20th century due to the triple threat of the vine disease phylloxera, the Great Depression, and of course, Prohibition. Join us at this unique Artisan Table to taste some outstanding varietals and learn more about Flora Farms' storied history.
