Three generations of the Murray family have come from the rich loam of the Mississippi River to the gravelly soil of the Dry Creek Valley to craft Flambeaux—limited production artisan wine celebrating the rich diversity of Sonoma County, California terroirs. Flambeaux’s winemaker Ryan Prichard, who has worked at William Selyem, Copain, and Medlock Ames and is now the Associate Winemaker at Three Sticks as well, brings a diverse and developed wine style that expresses the full qualities of each unique terroir. This multi-generational label serves as proof that making great wine truly takes a village and embodies the sentiment “better together”. Their passion for wine and the fun with which they have making it are infectious. We are so excited to have Flambeaux included in our collection of wines at Region.

November 16 – November 22
It’s often said that great wines are made in the vineyard, but for Charlie and Amy Chenoweth, that’s less a saying than an actual fact. For Charlie, the legendary grape grower, and Amy, the family winemaker, the fruit is everything. Proudly staked is a 20+ year history of farming some of the most coveted grapes in Sonoma County, on the land that has been in their family since the mid-1800’s.
November 23 – November 29
Discovered in 1989, the Topel family discovered the old sheep farm, perched on the hills west of Hopland in beautiful Mendocino County. With perfect growing conditions for Bordeaux varietals, the farm is now 160-acres, with only 15 vineyard acres planted, the rest of the pristine land is left to nature – oaks, manzanitas, coyotes and hawks.
The experience and care Martin and his family have for their land and wines produced from it is inspiring. With so many wines to explore we were compelled to include this set of wines from, just as famously known and beloved, Mendocino County.
November 30 – December 6
