Event Details

Emily Pelton Virginia VermouthEmily Pelton, Veritas and Flying Fox Vineyards

Emily graduated from Emory University with a B.S. in Neuroscience & Behavioral Biology, and a focus in Infectious Diseases. She moved to Virginia from Atlanta in 1999 to take a year off, and work alongside her parents in the development of Veritas Vineyard and Winery. It didn’t take long for her to realize that she was not going back to her original field of study. After completing her Masters in Oenology at Virginia Tech, Emily joined the family venture full-time. Allowing the Virginia terroir to show through in her wines, Emily focuses primarily on vineyard-specific qualities. Elevated by a strong family business, she has grown up making wine solely for Veritas Vineyard and Winery. Emily won Virginia’s Wine Person of the Year in 2017 and also manages the Virginia Winemakers Research Cooperative to further the progress and growth in the Virginia Wine Industry through winery driven research. Outside of wine she has an extensive orchid collection and two beautiful girls.
