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.

At the winery red grapes are sorted and foot crushed without being destemmed. Fermentations (generally performed by native yeasts but occasionally a neutral yeast is added) take place in one ton bins with once daily manuel punch downs. A small water powered bladder press is used to retrieve the juice from the must. Settled juice is pumped into old oak barrels or stainless steel tanks to finish fermentation and all wines are allowed to rest on their lees, undisturbed and without being racked, for the duration of the fermentation process. White grapes are crushed and destemmed and then pressed after a 2 day maceration. Settled white juice is then allowed to brown prior to fermentation. All wines, red, white and rose, go through malolactic fermentation if they so desire. After one year, if fermentation has finished, the wine is racked off its lees and bottled by hand without fining or filtration.
