St Florence is a golden barrel aged ale made with white wine grapes. It is named for Topher and Bernadette's first daughter.  Saint Florence was a 7th century abbess from Cartagena, Spain

In 2023, St Florence: Riesling was made by blending barrel aged golden mixed culture fermentation ale with 456kg of handpicked, whole bunch Riesling courtesty of Bryan Martin at Ravensworth. After a three month maceration and refermentation of fruit and beer, it was bottled and allowed to naturally carbonate and mature before release.

Tasting notes: “A super clean and light ale, full of brightness and ripe fruit notes from the Riesling as compared to Semillon which marries well with our Gold base accentuating it's stone fruit character above the citrus driven aspect as in Semillon. Very well balanced, exactly what we shoot for... it tastes effortless, however a lot of work went into making it like that. A drink for all tastes and ages.”
Wildflower was co-founded in 2016 by brothers-in-law Topher Boehm and Chris Allen. 

Made a little differently, their beers have been fermented with a diversity of yeasts and bacteria collected from flowers native to NSW... hence the name. Their practice has developed over time and so has their relationships with local regenerative growers of grain, hops and fruit, who they celebrate their agriculturally focused fermented ales with.
