Winemaker, Keith  Emerson

Keith Emerson joined Vineyard 36 in 2017 as Director of Winemaking. As director of winemaking, Emerson oversees all wine programs for The opportunity to interact with Napa Valley’s esteemed growers and winemakers has been an integral part of his professional development. With over 12 years of winemaking and vineyard experience, Emerson’s leadership, can-do attitude and organizational skills have earned him the respect of his peers.

Emerson obtained his Enology and Viticulture degree from the University of California at Davis in 1999. After a year at Cakebread Cellars, he accepted an enologist position with Sonoma’s historical Gundlach Bundschu Winery. Emerson quickly excelled to assistant winemaker, soon after was named associate winemaker and became solely responsible for Gundlach Bundschu’s second label, Block 13. The Block 13 program enabled Emerson to cultivate his own personal style of wine and gave him valuable experience in developing a wine brand from the ground up.

In March 2004, Emerson traveled to Martinborough, New Zealand to work for Palliser Estate Wines. For him, the experience of working a vintage in the southern hemisphere was remarkable. In 2005 Emerson continued to raise the bar when he and his colleague, Brian Brown, began work on their very own artisan label, Emerson Brown. Please visit the website at
