Vintage: 2022
Region: Mendocino, California
Viticulture: Organic
Grape varieties: 100% Valdiguié

Emme Wines Summer Will Wake is Rosalind’s second vintage of Valdiguié from the famed Richetti vineyard in Mendocino. Brambly blackberry, black plum, gritty tannins, and bright acidity on the finish. Picked in October, the Valdiguié came off the vine low in sugar and high in acid, a great compliment to the purple flavors and structured tannins of the fruit. At the winery, the Valdiguié was foot-crushed and fermented whole cluster for 10 days. After pressing, the wine finished primary fermentation in stainless steel, then was moved to neutral barrique to age for 5 months. Indigenous yeast fermentation. No added sulfur, no other additions, unfined and unfiltered.

About Emme Wines

From winemaker Rosalind Reynolds:

My name is Rosalind, and I farm grapes organically and make wine without additives.

I work within a like-minded community of grape growers and winemakers in Northern California. 2018 marked the first year I set out to create something of my own, albeit with the welcome support of the talented people who surround me.

Wine, at its core, is about community. Countless hands are involved in every glass you drink – the growers who planted cuttings three generations ago; the field workers who prune the vines in winter, tend them throughout the year, and pick the grapes to come autumn; the winemakers and interns who foot stomp those grapes, forklift bins of fermenting fruit from tank to press, and fill barrels with wine to rest before bottling; and the distributors, restaurateurs, and sommeliers who help bring that bottle to you. An incredible amount of labor and love goes into filling a glass with wine, and I am constantly reminded of and grateful for the community that makes all of it possible. I could not do this alone, nor would I want to.

Similarly, at the end of the day, wine should be enjoyed with your own community of friends and family. I aim to make fresh, bright wines that taste good, encourage thoughtful discussion, and ultimately bring people together.
