One of our favorite New York producers, Eminence Road Farm Winery marches to the beat of its own drummer. Based in a converted cow barn in the mountain valley of Long Eddy, NY, on the western edge of the Catskills, Eminence Road is, in a way, a Finger Lakes winery. All of their wines are made from sustainably grown Finger Lakes grapes, fermented with native yeast, and bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered with the only addition being a minimal amount of sulfur for stability. Elizabeth's Vineyard sits on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, near the town of Hector, NY. The vineyard is located above a particularly deep part of the lake, and soils are fairly thin, lending depth and mineral backbone to the wines. The grapes ferment with natural yeast in bins for 17 days and then finish fermenting in neutral French oak barrels, undergoing full malolactic fermentation. The nose is full of red fruit with a streak of graphite, and on the palate it’s bright, juicy, and light yet dry with fine stem tannin. Sustainably grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
