Flora Springs is a family endeavor that epitomizes three generations of hard work, dedication and a team effort. The vitality of our family is obvious as we set about the task of growing great grapes and making world-class wine. Even the name Flora Springs has significance – Flora is our mother, and the springs refer to the natural water source on the estate that has flowed uninterrupted through Napa Valley winemaking history.
It all began 30 years ago when our parents, Jerry and Flora Komes, bought the first vineyard – a vineyard with history, great soils and two ghost wineries. What was to have been Jerry and Flora’s retirement project was destined to become a lifetime passion for son John Komes and daughter Julie Garvey and their families. John quickly talked the family (including brother Mike Komes) into making wine. Julie and John worked side by side making the first two vintages of Flora Springs wines, while Julie’s husband, Pat Garvey, took over the vineyard side of things. Then in 1980, Ken Deis was hired as Winemaker and he remained at Flora Springs until 2008, when he passed the winemaking legacy to his assistant winemaker of 18 years, Paul Steinauer.
