Emeritus Vineyards- Sonoma Winery with Excellent Pinot Noir

Emeritus Vineyards is located in Sonoma County in lovely California. In 1999, legendary vintner, Brice Cutrer Jones, founded Emeritus with the goal of crafting excellent New World Pinot Noir. Emeritus established high-quality plantings throughout 140 acres of vineyards, all of which are dry-farmed, producing top tier Pinot Noir across two remarkable vineyard sites, Hallberg Ranch and Pinot Hill.

Emeritus Vineyards crafts excellent estate-grown Pinot Noir in Sonoma County expressing the true nature of wines grown on the Californian Coast.

Sustainable and Organic Dry-Farming Practices

In 1999, Emeritus acquired Halberg Ranch and planted vines at both this great site as well as at the William Wesley vineyard, known for great coastal influences and ample fog. The cellar purchased new fermentation tanks, vats, and implemented several environmentally friendly controls. The winery believes in sustainable and organic dry-farming practices to preserve vines and to make high-quality wines with comp;lex aromas and flavors. The winery is now operated by the second generation with Brice’s daughter, Mari Jones, taking overall winery operations.

Vineyards in Three Locations

Emeritus Vineyards farms grapes throughout three vineyard locations, Pinot Hill, William Wesley, and Hallberg Ranch. The soils, rainfall, and climate are perfect for the growth and cultivation of vines. There is a minimum intervention in the vineyards, and dry-farming enables the grapes to reach full maturity and develop high-quality fruit. Harvesting takes place beginning at midnight when the temperature is low, and workers handpick the best grapes. The grapes are transported to the winery and go through a cold soaking process prior to fermentation. French oak barrels are also used for delicate aging of the wines. This process helps to preserve the natural taste of the wines at Emeritus Vineyards and gives great structure and complexity.
