Founded by the Murray family, originally from New Orleans, Flambeaux makes hand-crafted, limited-production wines that capture the essence of the Flambeaux Dry Creek Valley Estate Vineyard, as well as other world-class Sonoma County vineyards. The Flambeaux are the dancing torchbearers of New Orleans Carnival during Mardi Gras, representing tradition, light, dance and joy.
Art and Nicole Murray, co-founded Flambeaux in Healdsburg, California along with his parents Steve and Pattie Murray, and daughters Alys, Elizabeth, Nia and Lila Murray. At Flambeaux, Winemaker Ryan Prichard (who makes wine at Three Sticks, and has also worked at Williams Selyem, Copain Custom Crush and Medlock Ames) employs the Murray family’s philosophy of allowing the grapes to evolve and naturally grow into what they become. With this minimalist approach, the fruit ends up as the best of itself and results in intriguing and exciting wines.
