Winemaker, Keith Emerson

I have been making wine since 1998 beginning at Cakebread Cellars and after that, became enologist at Sonoma's historical Gundlach Bundschu Winery. In 2004 a sabbatical took me to Martinborough, New Zeland to work the harvest for Palliser Estate Wines. Since 2005, I have been Director of Winemaking (and now President & CEO) for Vineyard 29 overseeing the winery's portfolio as well as that of the ultra-premium custom crush clientele. In addition to my own brands, Emerson Brown, atLarge and Sonria, I also make wine for Robert Craig Winery, Vinoce, Knighton Family, Labry, Sang-Froid, Vineyard 36, Martin Ray and Gundlach Bundschu.
