BOTTLED ALIVE!

Eminence Road Farm Winery makes small lots of dry table wine in a barn on the western edge of the Catskills using grapes from sustainably managed Finger Lakes vineyards. All wine is bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered with nothing added but a minimal amount of sulfite for stability and occasionally neutral yeast.

Eminence Road wine can be found at local farmers' markets as well as fine restaurants and wineshops in the Finger Lakes, Catskills, Hudson Valley, Manhattan and Brooklyn. Please click here for a partial and perpetually out-of-date list of venues. Please note, the winery is not open to the public and we do not have a tasting room. Due to the pandemic we are not accepting visitors at the winery except for prearranged, no contact wine pick ups. To order wine for pick up please e-mail us at: wine(at)eminenceroad.com.

Thank you for visiting Eminence Road,
Andrew, Jennifer, Brigette and Barry

dog in a vineyard

In the vineyard we are finishing up pruning and tying vines, replanting where needed and doing field prep for some test plantings of new grape varieties (varietals? Ugh). Now that the snow is mostly gone it is glaringly clear that the vole population has exploded and their presence is not doing the vines or fruit trees any favors. The dogs spend hours digging around trying to catch them but, beyond leaving huge ruts in the field, the effects are marginal. Maybe the answer is more dogs.


plug

In the winery we are learning all about electricity as we attempt to wire a dedicated outlet for a new corking machine manufactured in Italy, where plugs are mysterious, round pronged and high-voltage. Those crazy Europeans!

Elsewhere around the farm the soil is warming, ramps are up, trout are creeping into our (or maybe just Andrew's) thoughts and the dogs are already taking daily dips in the pond.

That's all for now. Thank you for reading and cheers.
