Emeritus Vineyards

Emeritus Vineyards is guided by the philosophy that great wines are shaped by soil, climate, and people

Guided by the steady hands of Winemaker Keith Hammond, every step in the evolution of an Emeritus Vineyards Pinot Noir is thoughtfully considered to create place-driven wines of unparalleled elegance and integrity. Made in the most gentle and sustainable way possible, we craft wines that are delightfully distinct and balanced, while honoring the vintage and the vineyards they come from.
