Flanagan Wines was born out of my love for wine. I visited wine growing regions around the world from New Zealand to Greece and I was fascinated by how the same grape variety produced different wines in different locations. This led to an interest in great vineyard sites and a focus on the soils and the climate that made each unique. In 1999 I chose to act on my interest by purchasing 40 acres on the heights of Bennett Mountain and planting our first vineyard. I now produce wines from several of the most highly regarded vineyard sites in Sonoma County. Flanagan Wines is becoming known for making great wines from the best vineyards in Sonoma County.
My daughter, Riley, started her own wine brand, “Riley’s Rows”, in 2017. Her mission is to
share her love of wine through creating great wines at an accessible price point. In July of 2021,
Riley moved to Tulsa to run wholesale sales for us in the Midwest and the South. We are so
excited to be a part of this community and to be back at Philbrook Wine Experience!
