Melville Winery | Lompoc, California |

Chad and his brother Brent planted the vineyard from raw land in the cold climate of Santa Rita Hills in 1997 and 1998. The family has been in the growing of wine business since the mid 80's and found their Santa Rita Hills location before the area really took off. The journey that began in 1997 continues to endure with tremendous passion and dedication. 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. 100% estate. 100% neutral wood. 100% organic. 100% honest wine.


Chad will be on the expert panel for the Magical Cool Climate Syrah seminar on Saturday, April 4. Learn how and why cool climate Syrah is magical without putting down Syrah's grown in warmer and hotter regions.
