Our old stone winery at Flora Springs is considered one of a handful of Napa Valley’s famous “Ghost Wineries.” Built in the 1800’s, it sat vacant for years after it’s two Scottish founders, the Rennie brothers, discouraged by a series of setbacks and bad breaks, abandoned the storied estate. Although it’s true that no one in our family has seen even a trace of a ghost without the help of spirits much stronger than wine, it’s best to have a flashlight handy once nighttime falls on the Flora Springs estate. With hooting owls and low flying bats even the slightest rustling of leaves can send a shiver down ones spine.

To pay homage to the happily haunted corners of our winery we took a varietal that has all but disappeared from our signature wine Trilogy, and created a 100% Cabernet Franc we call Ghost Winery.

Virginia based artist Wes Freed, best known for his art on the CD covers for Drive By Truckers, created a custom piece for the Ghost Winery label.
