Flying Lady

Every bottle of Flying Lady is the culmination of balanced collaboration between people and place. The Flying Lady team is comprised of Founders David and Zach Nassar and Winemaker Ross Bentley. David and Zach created Flying Lady as a continuation of their sense of curiosity, exploration, and adventure. As our winemaker, Ross brings years of experience with cult brand wines and a philosophy of balance to each wine crafted at Flying Lady. Together, the Flying Lady team seeks out the best of Napa Valley and its appellations, including the Oak Knoll and Spring Mountain Districts, to create wines capable of elevating any adventure.

The Winery and Vineyard

When it comes to making exceptional wines, people represent only part of the equation. At Flying Lady, we believe that our greatest partners are the soil and vines of our vineyards. For our 2015 and 2016 releases, we utilized fruit from the L’Attitude Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District to produce our single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This rare sliver of land bordering Dry Creek sits at the base of the Mayacamas Mountain Range on the Alluvial Fan and receives the drainage of the entire Mayacamas Range. The confluence of rich soil and consistent hydration and drainage cycles delivers amazing high-quality grapes. Our York Creek Vineyard, which sits high on Spring Mountain alongside the Flying Lady Winery and Estate, and which will provide the fruit for upcoming vintages, provides vibrant and unique fruit that reflects the distinct characteristics of our home on Spring Mountain.

The Flying Lady Winery & Estate is perched atop Spring Mountain, offering unparalleled panoramic views of Napa Valley, perfectly framed by the Mayacamas and Vaca Mountain Ranges.  Our 13-acre property is every bit as beautiful and elegant as the wines we strive to create. We have just completed a large renovation of the original winery and residence and are in process of constructing a new tasting room and production facility. The 15-minute drive up Spring Mountain from St. Helena is well worth the adventure and we look forward to hosting our guests very soon.
