Drench is a product of heart and intuition; of taking opportunities as they come and drenching yourself in them.
I started Drench because I love the process and life style of making wine. This is no drink to be placed on a pedestal, but one to be shared with friends and family; A drink to relax, to contemplate and to carouse with.
In recent years, I have travelled to many wine regions around the world and had the fortune to experience a wealth of styles and varieties. Now, it is my pleasure to share this experience with you through the flavors of Drench.
WHere it all began…
Emily’s first foray into the industry was an invitation to harvest La Grein grapes during a summer abroad in Bozen, Italy. Upon her return stateside, she was granted an apprenticeship with one of Carmel Valley’s leading vintners. In recent years, she has soaked up wine culture & craftsmanship from Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Spain, Portugal, New Zealand, and most recently France.
“ traveling allows me to take the techniques I have learned trough my apprentice
ship and compare them to others used around the world. It gives me a chance to
critique them and ask more questions about why I use the ones I do rather than
doing it a different way, and what the difference in the end product would be.”
