Over a decade ago we were introduced to a small urban winery and found the experience most intriguing. We started volunteering and participating in the process and have not stopped since. In 2013 we sold our family home in Oceanside to purchase a property where we could start a vineyard. La Fleur Vineyards was established in 2014 in the fertile soils of the Hidden Valley Escondido area. During the spring of 2014 our first one hundred Petite Sirah vines were planted. This was an exciting time for our family and we enjoyed a planting party with close family and friends! We followed the next year and planted two hundred Zinfandel vines. We are excited to have harvested our first estate wine - Petite Sirah, now bottled and ready to share. Our passion continues to grow and we have now doubled our vineyard A winemaker from a local winery/vineyard overheard us talking about opening a winery one day while we were at a Mexican restaurant having lunch at the bar. We bought a ton of his grapes (literally) and this is the result. Its good, damn TOTALLY NAKED Chardonnay Aged in Steel, sans oak influence this Chardonnay is Crisp, fruity, We have cheese plates and other snacks available.

HI! My name is Kristin. And I am so excited to share my love of painting with you! No matter if you paint like a five year old or like Van Gogh; it’s my goal to make you feel comfortable, laugh a lot and have a blast all while learning how to paint these beautiful paintings together. I have three young kids and they keep me young. They give me inspiration everyday even if it’s with crayons, glue sticks and glitter. Kids have a wonderful eye for beauty and just creating something for fun. As adults, so many of us have lost that passion of just being creative and having fun. I would love to be a part of bring that back. I had a rough childhood and I learned how cathartic and peaceful painting can be. I remember at a young age learning how to paint from my grandpa. I have always loved his work and I hope that I make him proud. I have always loved anything artsy. Painting, drawing, music, writing, film…the works. I graduated from UC Santa Barbra and loved every minute of my time there. I majored in Sociology with a minor in religious studies. I have a deep love for the ocean so waking up every day to the waves crashing was perfect for me. Also, all through college and long after I worked for Starbucks. Creating those complicated coffees was an art form in itself.I am also a world traveler. I have been all around the world but I lived in Romania for two plus years working with orphan kids. I have learned to be thankful for everything and to live this life to the fullest. This world has so much beauty. There is always something to be inspired by. Overall, I am a fun loving people person. I love to laugh and make others laugh. It’s my hope that when you come to my class you will forget the troubles of the world, have a great time and take home a beautiful painting to remember it by. I can’t wait to see you soon!
