Flâneur Winery & Vineyards was established in 2013 by former design and architecture firm owner Marty Doerschlag.
Flâneur, a term used to describe leisurely wanderers in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century by renowned poet Charles Baudelaire, encapsulates the idea that the mind functions best at a slow pace, and that curiosity can uncover a life of significance. It was that aspirational, connoisseur’s approach to life that resonated with Marty and led him to establish roots in the wine industry in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
In 2016, Flâneur Wines advanced their winemaking program by adding Grant Coulter as the Winemaker & Director of Vineyards. Prior to joining the team, Grant spent nine years as the award-winning winemaker for Beaux Frères Winery where he developed a large following and crafted the #3 Wine in the World in Wine Spectator’s 2016 Top 100. His experience, along with his never-ending creativity and innovative approach, make him one of the most exciting rising stars in the Willamette Valley wine industry.
Now in their sixth year of production, Flâneur Winery & Vineyards was built with a focus on innovation, authenticity and hospitality.
Today, they craft wines from 44 acres of organically dry-farmed estate vineyards; the Flanerie Vineyard in Ribbon Ridge and the La Belle Promenade Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains.
The September 6th, 2019 opening of Flâneur Wines at the Carlton Grain Elevator will further advance their place as a premier winemaking operation and provider of truly bespoke hospitality in Oregon, and beyond.
Flâneur Wines currently hosts tastings year round in their cozy tasting room in Carlton. During the Spring, Summer & Fall months, they also host tastings in their 100 year old barn, overlooking one of the finest vineyard views in the Willamette Valley.
Flâneur is in the process of converting the historic Carlton Grain Elevator into new and exciting hospitality center that will open in September 2019.
Tastings are offered seven days a week at both locations.
