    The 2015 Chardonnay Camp Meeting Ridge gives a seriously savory nose with baking bread, yeast extract and crumbled nuts notions over a core of warm peaches and Bosc pears plus a waft of jasmine. Medium-bodied, fine, fresh and very elegant in the mouth, it offers wonderful restraint yet compelling intensity and length.

    The 2015 Chardonnay Camp Meeting Ridge Moon Select is a selection of the best eight barrels in the cellar. Creamy, supple and nuanced, the 2015 is also one of the finest wines I have tasted from Flowers in a long time. All the elements are wonderfully fused together. Lemon confit, white flowers, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes all flesh out in this striking, unctuous Chardonnay. Even with all of its intensity, the 2015 remains light on its feet and classy to the core.

  • In 1989, Walt and Joan Flowers' quest for a cool climate vineyard site lead these former nursery owners to answer a short classified ad for land on the rugged Sonoma coast of Northern California. Atop 1,150-1,875-foot high ridges overlooking the Pacific Ocean, they have grown and produced quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay since the inaugural vintage in 1993. Flowers holds two estate properties: Camp Meeting Ridge, 23 acres of vines planted on the original property; and Flowers Ranch, 47 acres of Pinot planted from 1998-2001 on a second property. Both of these parcels benefit from abundant sunshine during the growing season, with the warmth tempered by the fog and cool wind off the ocean. Case production is around 15,000 cases each year. The finished products are consistently praised as excellent representations of the extreme terrior of the Northern Sonoma coastline.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
