To be a Flâneur is not about wasting time…. it’s about regaining time that has been lost.
Flâneur Wines is a small Carlton winery crafting wines from two organic estate vineyards near Newberg. The wines are made by Grant Coulter, former head winemaker at the acclaimed Beaux Frères winery. Grant is a dedicated proponent of terroir and the need for minimal intervention in the winemaking process. With minimal intervention, it is critical to source grapes from well-maintained, carefully farmed vineyards. Flâneur thus owns two estate organic vineyards on the western edge of Newberg: Flânerie Vineyard in the Ribbon Ridge AVA and La Belle Promenade Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA.
In the spirit of regaining time that has been lost, the Flâneur team has established their hospitality core at the historic Carlton Grain Elevator. The grain elevator has been an integral part of the Carlton and Willamette Valley community for more than 100 years. For a decade, the space sat unused in the center of town. Recognizing its potential Flâneur Wines purchased the building in 2013 to be a new wine-centric hospitality center that retains the beauty of the past.
The project, done by hand, represents all that Flâneur Wines tries to create: an unforgettable experience that slowly unfolds like every great bottle of wine.
