an urban winery in portland oregoN



Flat Brim Wines is an Americana Winery. We have two labels in our winery so we can approach each with a specific focus. Our Americana line works with American heritage varietals such as Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot and present them in new and interesting formats. I prefer a refreshing high acid low alcohol profile for my wines, which, makes them perfect for drinking on a front porch with your friends.

 Our Gold Flag line represents our interest in experimental wine making. We utilize interesting methods such as carbonic and whole cluster maceration and are always on the hunt for interesting varietals and vineyards. Expect high acid 100% whole cluster Pinot Noir as well as blends of carbonic macerated Pinot Meunier, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Franc.

  We only use neutral oak and prefer longer cooler fermentations as to not over extract. We partner with vineyards that are farmed sustainably in varying methods such as organic, biodynamic and live certified. During harvest we prefer high acids and lower sugars when we pick our lots. In the cellar we utilize the lowest amount of sulfites that is possible to produce stable wines. We strive to be minimal interventionist.
