A successful Bay Area businessman who brought his family to the Napa Valley 10 years ago, Brian Fleury turned his passion for collecting fine wine into a passion for making it. Today, Fleury Estate Winery owns 50 acres in Napa spanning 3 vineyards, in 3 separate appellations, and at 3 different elevations. Its small Rutherford facility produces and sells out of 3,000 cases annually, primarily through direct sales from the winery to consumers.
A self-taught winemaker, Brian’s philosophy is to let the grapes take center stage in every barrel, bottle and glass of wine. He started out by hiring various highly-regarded winemakers as mentors and working alongside them, while cultivating his own vision and style and integrating those into his approach. Clearly, he’s learned well, since his wines are in such great demand.
With its elegantly rustic feel, Fleury offers its guests an unusually intimate and memorable wine-tasting experience, personally guided by a member of the family in a private, on-premise salon. Combined with the quality of their wines, it’s no surprise that Fleury has built such a loyal following.
