Walt and Joan Flowers had long dreamed of combining their love of wine with their passion for agriculture. They knew they wanted to produce their favorite varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; what they didn't know was that their path would eventually lead them cross country to Northern California's rugged Sonoma Coast from their home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In 1989, after many information-gathering trips to Napa and Sonoma, Walt and Joan purchased 321 acres, including a ridge top, high above the Pacific Ocean on the northern Sonoma Coast. With the same determination they drew on to build their successful nursery business; the Flowers proceeded with the dream of producing their favorite cool-climate varietals in a place they believed uniquely suited to growing them. Today, Flowers Winery produces Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from its two estate properties, Camp Meeting Ridge Vineyard and Sea View Ridge Vineyard, as well as select vineyards in the coolest regions of the Sonoma Coast AVA, which are farmed to Flowers' specifications by their own crews.

Using organic and sustainable farming practices, Flowers carefully nurtures Chardonnay from vineyards located on the 'extreme' Sonoma Coast. The grapes benefit directly from the influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean which provides cool daytime breezes during bright sunny days to ensure proper ripening and chilly evening fogs to guarantee lively acidity for freshness in the finished wines.

Bursting with fresh, salty acidity, this appellation wine conjures the coast from which it comes, offering beguilingly soft layers of elegant richness. Apple, pear, nutmeg and a whiff of lemon meringue play well on the palate, with plenty of length and breadth to impress.

The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast has pretty aromas of white peach, candle smoke, toast and flinty touches with an uplift of floral perfume. The palate is light-bodied and fresh with restrained fruits and a mineral-driven finish. 18,000 cases produced.
