Flanagan Wines started in 1999. Planting began in 2001 and included Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah. In 2011, Flanagan acquired the 29 acre 3 Starrs Vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley, producing ripe, balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Flanagan is becoming known for stunning Syrah and elegant, site-driven expressions of Bordeaux varietals. Eric, Kit and their three daughters (Riley, Lola, and Ruby) make their home at the 3 Starrs Vineyard along with 3 dogs, 4 ducks, 6 Dwarf Nigerian goats, 2 geese, and 1 mule (also named Ruby).
