She'll discuss the differences between different grape varieties, and the characteristics of each vintage. She'll also talk about farming practices and wine making choices. The night is sure to be full of wine, stories, and fun!

    Reception - Riley's Rows Sauvignon Blanc
    1st Course - Riley's Rows Rosé of Syrah

    About Flanagan Wines
    Sourcing our grapes from the best vineyards is the cornerstone of our wines. Our original ranch in Bennett Valley is, without question, one of the top new world sites for cool climate Syrah. In 2015 we acquired the iconic Platt Ranch in Bodega. We believe that Platt is the greatest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyard in California. Eric Flanagan, through a targeted vineyard investment fund he started, acquired the Platt Vineyard and also purchased the Gap’s View vineyard in the Petaluma Gap area of the Sonoma Coast AVA. Our vineyard designated wines currently include Platt Vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay, Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay, and Gap’s View Vineyard Pinot Noir. 

    About Riley’s Rows
    I love every aspect of making wine and want to be involved in every step of the process. In 2021 I completed my bachelor’s in chemistry at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and moved to Tulsa, OK to run sales in the Midwest and the South. After two incredible and formative years in Tulsa, I moved to San Diego in June of 2023 to help develop our brand presence in Southern California and be closer to home. My plan is to split my time between Southern California, my different sales markets, and the winery in Healdsburg, California. I am a vintner, like my dad, and I always set the directions for my wines and do my own final blends. Riley's Rows is my dream come true and I am so excited to share it with you.
