Philippe Melka is quickly becoming the name to listen for on wine tours and wine tastings. Additionally, look for this wine on lists in the finest restaurants all over the Napa Valley. This Bordeaux native studied geology, agriculture, and enology throughout his higher education. He cut his teeth studying and working in wineries everywhere from our own Yountville, in the heart of Napa Valley, to his home in France (Haut Brion & Petrus) and overseas in Australia. He has learned from some of the finest winemakers and wine houses in both France and the United States. Melka now consults at wineries throughout Napa Valley to help other brands build the complexity, texture, and depth of flavor associated with his name. He is also the co-proprietor of his own label but his artistry is evident in each of the winery portfolios above.
