When Pinot Noir achieves its highest expression, there is no wine that can compare with it.
– DON BLACKBURN, FOUNDING WINEMAKER
Emeritus Vineyards was realized to focus on our passion for expressing each vineyard’s terroir in the wine, using dry farmed and environmentally sustainable techniques.
As a result, our wines are best described as elegant, balanced, and—especially—charming.
Our Tasting Room is right inside our working winery in the middle of our iconic Hallberg Ranch Vineyard. You can see the whole operation from grape to glass from the tasting room, on a tour of the vineyard and winery, or even from the comfort of your own home through our virtual experiences!
All tastings are seated and personalized, with knowledgeable hosts prepared to educate or casually chat about our winery and wines, whichever you’d prefer. The atmosphere is open and elegantly rustic, with a streamlined contemporary flair—a style reflective of our unique Pinot Noirs.
Emeritus Vineyards was born of a dream to create a noble and authentic Pinot Noir, one that especially speaks of elegance and charm. To that end, an experienced team of uniquely qualified individuals—including our founder, Air Force and wine industry veteran Brice Jones—combined their talents to work toward the realization of that dream.
Guided by the vision of our founder Brice Jones, our second generation president Mari Jones is continuing the family tradition of excellence in both wine and service.
