One of my favorite Wine Events of the Year: Melville Small Lot Pinot Noir Tasting

It's time for Melville's yearly debut of the 2006 estate small lot collection pinot noirs: High Density, Indigene, Terraces and Carrie's. For a tasting fee you get access to some of the most sought after Pinot Noir from Melville. Last year we retired to the tables and enjoyed chatting with Brent Melville who was whipping up some great complimentary Tri Tip. According to the site, he'll be barbecuing again this year. Tasty stuff, plus he's apt to go dig out some other new releases for sampling. This is event is fantastic every year and a great opportunity to taste some Pinot Noir. I've been a fan of the Carrie's and the Terraces since our wedding at Melville. Last year was the first year for the Indigene, Melville's first Pinot fermented with native yeast. I'm looking forward to see how it compares with the other selections.

Dates March 21st- March 23rd 2008 . Hours 11 am - 4pm. Link to Melville's site.

While on a tour of California Coast wineries I recently visited Melville and was really impressed with the beauty of the winery and the quality of the wine. You can read my reviews and check out my video
