Erin Pooley


Erin Frances Pooley

Owner & Winemaker

Erin Pooley was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. Before relocating to California she graduated from Charles Sturt University with a degree in Applied Wine Science. Erin has been making wine worldwide since 2007. 

Enamored with the nuance and intrigue of white wine with bottle age, Erin started her wine company in 2012 with Semillon from the Luchsinger Vineyard in Lake County, California. 

From the outset, Erin has subscribed to the philosophy of aging Semillon before release. These dry white wines develop a savoury complexity and depth fascinating to experience over years of cellaring.

Little Frances added Clarksburg Chenin Blanc to the line-up in 2017 and will release Merlot from the Sierra Foothills later in 2019. These additions are a continued exploration into making the most engaging expressions of Californian wine possible.. 

Erin was recently featured as a San Francisco Chronicle Winemaker to Watch - so watch this space! There’s a lot more from Little Frances to come!
