To celebrate Oregon Wine Month, we are so excited to share our kitchen with Flâneur Wines‘ Grant Coulter and Amelia Dobbes.
Flâneur Wines creates exceptional Willamette Valley wines made from their estates, La Belle Promenade in the Chehalem Mountains AVA and Flanerie Vineyard in the Ribbon Ridge AVA. Winemaker, Grant Coulter has crafted an award-winning portfolio of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Aligote, Gruner Veltliner and traditional method sparkling wine.
The French name, Flâneur, is a word used to describe leisurely wanderers in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century by renowned poet Charles Baudelaire. Flâneur encapsulates the idea that the mind functions best at a slow pace, and that curiosity can uncover a life of significance. This was the life that Founder, Marty Doerschlag lived between selling his first company and starting Flâneur Wines in 2013. Today, Flâneur Wines currently hosts tastings year-round in the historically renovated Madsen Grain Elevator and in their 100-year-old Barn, overlooking one of the finest vineyard views in the Willamette Valley.
