Emerson Brown Collaborations
began while working hand in glove at Vineyard 29 during the harvest season of 2005, a vintage marked by an excessively large crop, so big that many wineries turned fruit away at the crush pad. We did a little horse-trading with growers and the Emerson Brown partnership was born. We have continually collaborated on Napa Valley Wines ever since. We hope you enjoy our latest offerings.
...is a Boston native winemaker with more than 20 vintages to his credit. He is one of the few winemakers who excels at crafting both Bordeaux and Burgundian varieties. Keith produces wines from Napa, Sonoma, Oregon and Santa Cruz. Since 2005, he has focused his attention on his position as Director of Winemaking for Napa's Vineyard 29. In addition to collaborating with Brian, Keith also crafts small lot Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet under his At Large label and makes wine for a handful of clients.
...earned his viticulture and enology degree from the University of California, Davis in 2001. After graduating, Brian worked harvests with Iron Horse Vineyards in Sonoma, Salitage in Pemberton Australia, and Napa Wine Company in Oakville. Then Brian moved to Trefethen Vineyards as their enologist, where he learned to make balanced vineyard driven wines that express fruit qualities over winemaker manipulations. In 2016, Brian moved to what is now the Willow Creek Wine Co. He and wife Natalie enveloped their multiple brands under one roof, planted several acres of vineyard, and are moving into their newly constructed production facility. In addition to Emerson Brown wines, you will find Rococo, Soubrette,and In Medias Res at the Willow Creek Wine Co. Be sure to visit Brian and Natalie when you are near Paso Robles.
When we hatched the Emerson Brown collaboration, we agreed The Napa Valley AVA would be our exclusive playground.
Like a favorite park, everyone has their go to ride, the one that whips your lips as the wind blasts your smile. For us, that's our Vineyard Designate Wine. Currently, we are featuring Rancho Pequeno in the Oakville sub-AVA for our aptly named Emerson Brown Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon.
Sampling every source of pleasure in the playground is another joyful expression. We refer to that broad brush approach as our Vineyard Exploration Project. Our best interpretation of this hails from different Napa Sub-AVA's depending on which area experienced ideal growing conditions in a particular vintage. Our popular Emerson Brown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon captures the power and pleasure of every corner in our home playground.
