Springs is a family endeavor that epitomizes hard work, dedication and teamwork
. The vitality of our family is obvious as we set about the task of growing great
grapes and making absolutely delicious wine. Even the name Flora Springs has significance
- Flora is our mother and the springs refer to the water source on the property
that has flowed uninterrupted regardless of periods of drought.
Julie Komes Garvey John Komes Ken Deis Patrick J. Garvey It all began over 20
years ago, when our parents, Jerry and Flora Komes bought the first vineyard -
a vineyard with lots of history, great soils and two ghost wineries. Their retirement
project became a lifetime passion for son John Komes and daughter Julie Garvey
and their families. John quickly talked the family (including another brother
Mike Komes) into making wine. Julie worked side by side with John as the first
two years they made the wines. Julie’s husband Pat Garvey took over the vineyard
side of things. In 1980, Ken Deis was hired as winemaker and he has been part
of the family ever since.
