Melville is a family-owned, 100% estate, organic vineyard and winery in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County. We produce Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and a small amount of Grenache. All our wines, from our flagship Estate Pinot Noir to our Small Lot Collection Donna’s Block Syrah, are hand-grown and hand-made 100 cases at a time.
We have been practicing responsible farming for over three decades, and since 1997 in the Sta. Rita Hills when brothers Chad and Brent Melville planted our estate vineyards (before the AVA was formally established). We take great pride in our commitment to “winegrowing”…working in harmony with Mother Nature to nurture our land through organic and sustainable farming practices to ensure that all of the most crucial work is done in the vineyard.
