|Founded in 1978 by Jerry and Flora Komes, along with their children — John Komes and his wife Carrie, and Julie Komes-
Garvey and her husband Pat Garvey, Flora Springs has been a family affair for three decades, developing an admirable
record for producing high quality, region-specific wines. The Komes and Garvey families own 650 acres of vineyards
throughout five appellations in the Napa Valley, enabling Flora Springs to maintain the quality of their wines through estate
grown, hand picked fruit.
Part of Flora Springs’ commitment to community and innovation is through green vineyard
practices: 100% of their vineyards are sustainably farmed, and 20% (120 acres) are organic with another 240 acres
undergoing certification. 90% of Flora Springs’ red wines currently come from organically farmed vineyards. In December
2007, Flora Springs implemented solar power at the Komes Ranch on Zinfandel Lane, enabling all of their red wine
production to go completely off the grid.
Paul Steinauer, winemaker for the past two years after acting as assistant
winemaker for eighteen years prior to his promotion, has an “old world meets new world” winemaking approach.
