Flat Brim Wines in Portland has been great at providing us with some of the most refreshing, unassuming, and affordable wines in Oregon. Their mission, like many new-wave American winemakers, is basically to recreate the accessible, thirst-quenching style found in regions like the Loire and Beaujolais: a noble goal, for sure. Ian Atkins found his way to wine after serving in the Army and then working at a restaurant started by his wife and brother-in-law in El Paso. They opened more successful restaurants together and eventually the wine bug called them to Portland, Oregon.

The 'Not Cringey' is a field-blend of Primitivo and Zinfandel, which are essentially just different clones of the same variety. It's sourced from granitic soils in the Connor and Hodge vineyards in southern Oregon's Applegate Valley. Fermented whole-cluster and aged in neutral barrels for 12-15 months, with no additions besides a small addition of sulfur at bottling. It's bursting with fresh cranberry and raspberry and though it's 100% in-line with Ian's 'soif, American style' philosophy, it has serious balance and great layers of crunchy texture. Hints of smoky vanilla and a little black pepper make it particularly grill-friendly but this is a versatile, friendly wine for any setting. [Jonathan Kemp, December 2021]

Terms & Conditions

You must be 21 years or older to purchase and receive products from Vanderbilt Wine Merchants. If you request shipping you authorize Vanderbilt Wine Merchants to engage a common carrier to deliver your order. All shipments require an adult signature at the time of delivery. Therefore, either you or an authorized adult must be present at the time of delivery with proof of identification. 
If you wish to ship to a location outside of New York State, you assume all responsibility for shipment. We will notify you before processing your order if we are unable to ship wine to the state you request. For the protection of your wines, we will not ship during warmer months without your express request. All orders are packed immediately upon purchase but we may wait for optimal conditions to send. Since we cannot control the temperature of any common carrier, we do our best to send shipments out at the beginning of each week. We will always confirm any delays in shipment, and the choice is ultimately up to you.
Some of our wine is sold "Pre-Arrival." All "Pre-Arrival" items will be indicated as such on our website and include the estimated date of arrival. We will contact you once the wine has arrived and confirm any shipment or delivery requests prior to sending. 

We are here to help you with your order, so don't hesitate to text us at (718) 398-1800 or email us at orders@vanderbilt.wine with any questions!

From time to time we purchase private collections and offer these wines to you at competitive and, we think, very attractive pricing.  We only purchase cellars of top provenance bottles that have been stored in ideal conditions, and we only work with trusted acquaintances and collectors.  If the wine you are considering does not display certain information, or if you would like certain images of the bottles please reach out using the form below.
