Founder, Marty Doerschlag, began Flâneur Wines after selling his first company and spending some much-needed time traveling the world. His objective was to observe and learn how to appreciate and live slowly, embracing the word flâneur. Already having an appreciation for farming, food, and wine he was enchanted by Oregon’s land and ability for cultivating grapes. He knew that to make top-quality wines, he would need a world-class team all of equal importance from farming to hospitality to winemaking.
Winemaker, Grant Coulter, was previously with Beaux Freres winery for 8 years, collecting many achievements under his belt. He fell in love with Flâneur as he saw an opportunity to express his artistic vision and take risks with wine without the utilization of chemicals or manipulation.
Alongside these two masterminds behind Flâneur Wines are a specially-selected team of craftspeople including but not limited to: Russell Lichtenthal, Director of Hospitality and Sales; Brooke Jefferson, Wine Club and Regional Sales Manager; Kellie Campbell, Tasting Room Manager; James Alexander, Cellar Master; Jaime Cantu, Vineyard Manager; and Ruben Lopez, Field Worker and Tractorist.
