The Vinoce Winery tasting room can be found in the city of Napa in a cozy space close to the Napa river. Vinoce’s winemaker Keith Emerson wears many hats when it comes to making wine. That keeps harvest all the more interesting. The fact is, I’ve always felt that the smaller quantity production a wine label offers, the greater the focus. Yep, small is good.

    Just to make clear: This is Keith Emerson, winemaker, not Keith Emerson of Emerson Lake and Palmer. Vinoce’s Keith Emerson sources some of his grapes from Lake County, and he’s likely tasted Chat. Palmer. That Keith Emerson, I’m betting does and has not., But he probably sings and plays better than Keith the winemaker.
