WinterFest

Melville Winery

Lompoc, CA

With Chad Melville, Cofounder, Head Winegrower

In 1997, working side-by-side with his father Ron and brother Brent, Chad helped to establish Melville’s Estate vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills American Viticultural Area, a journey that began and continues to endure with tremendous passion and dedication. Since that time, Chad has received great critical acclaim for his wines. Through both his intimate knowledge of the vineyards and his relentless commitment to winemaking practices that honor tradition and the land, Chad understands the magical evolution each bottle of wine undertakes from vine to glass.

Founded in 1989, Melville is a family-owned winery with roots in Sonoma County’s Knights Valley, where Ron grew high-quality and greatly sought-after grapes. In 1996, Ron’s desire to grow cold-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah brought Melville Vineyards to the Sta. Rita Hills, located in the Western Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County. Today, Ron and Chad uphold Melville’s tradition as one of the most highly-regarded estates in California. In 2018, Melville was named as one of Wine & Spirits Magazine’s Top 100 Wineries in the world.

I am continually blown away by what they can put in a bottle.
Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
