Samsara (Santa Rita Hills)

Northern California Only

Chad and Mary Melville are producing some very exciting wines from their small (1400 case) winery. Native yeasts, partial whole clusters and a light touch with oak create wines that are fresh and salivating. Pinot Noir & Syrah.

“Samsara is without question one of the hottest boutique wineries in California’s Central Coast. Proprietor Chad Melville splits his time between Samsara and his family’s Melville estate, and approach that seems to work. The wines were fermented with natural yeasts, and bottled without fining or filtration. Melville used 25-100% whole clusters for most of the wines. The top selections saw a maximum of new oak.” Antonio Galloni
