Flaneur Wines

Willamette Valley • Oregon, USA

Flaneur Wines, with its first vintage in 2013, is a rising star in Willamette Valley with two estate vineyards – Flanerie Vineyard in the Ribbon Ridge AVA on marine sediment Willakenzie soils and La Belle Promenade Vineyard, a high-elevation vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA with volcanic decomposed basalt soils.

Winemaker/Director of Vineyards Grant Coulter joined Flaneur in February 2016 after 9 years as the winemaker at Beaux Freres. A flâneur is, quite simply, a leisurely wanderer. The word, hailing from 19th-century France, captures the idea that the mind functions best at a slow pace, and that curiosity can uncover a life of significance. The label image of a man walking a turtle conveys this sense of slowing down to appreciate life. The wines are crafted from hand-harvested, organically-farmed fruit. After native yeast fermentation they are moved through the winery with minimal intervention and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
