At Emerson Vineyards, it is our goal to make the best wines possible while remaining good stewards of the land that surrounds us. We make decisions on a daily basis in the vineyard and in the winery that have an impact on more than just our bottlings. Whenever possible, we use organic solutions in tending our vines and wines.

Emerson Vineyards is a family operation, and that shows at many levels. Tom’s grandfather, Emerson Waldo Fisher, is the namesake of our winery. Emerson was a creative, devoted, and ingenious man who continues to be an inspiration to his family long since his passing.

Elliott Johns is the “vines and wines” part of the Emerson Vineyards equation. Born in Corvallis, he is a graduate of Oregon State University’s Fermentation Science program. Elliott has worked with Elk Cove Vineyards in Gaston and Chard Farm Winery in New Zealand. Elliott lives in McMinnville with his wife Jenny, their daughter Livy, and their dogs, Birdy and Emmit. When he’s not growing grapes, making wine, or raising a family, Elliott always relishes a round of golf or tending his home gardens.

Tom Johns is not-really-retired after a decades-long career in the medical industry. Among other things, Tom is the business and marketing department at Emerson Vineyards. Tom and his wife Jane live on the estate at Emerson Vineyards. In his free time, Tom enjoys golf, movies, books, travel and meeting new people.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
