  • Nothing better in this region than these wines LOVE Them!
  • Very nice area and atmosphere. Good pricing on tasting. Wine was below average. Prices per bottle were the exact same at the vineyard and at a wine store in San Luis Obispo.
  • Beautiful, smallish winery with peaceful, beautiful gardens for picnic or a great bottle. Wine is fantastic. Ask for Bill in tasting room: knows his subject, funny, personable. ..a great host!
  • Melville makes excellent wines, and their prices ($30-$50ish for most bottles, with a lot at $30ish) are a bargain for the quality. The tasting room is spacious, but not too big, and the staff are great. Knowledgeable about the wines, the region, and the local goings on, Melville is definitely worth a visit. Melville shares a driveway with Babcock, so it's worth popping in to both. It's just a few minutes outside of Buellton, and if you continue on to Lompoc, check out the Wine Ghetto.
  • Melville is pretty much the finest Pinot Noir on the west coast. There, I said it. Their Terraces PN is just jaw-droppingly good, and the rest of their line is also eye-opening. They make excellent unoaked Chardonnays as well, and great Syrahs and a lovely Viognier. But the Pinot Noir is the star here, the real crown jewel, the one bottle that tells you exactly what the wine from the Santa Rita Hills ought to taste like. Deep and complex and fruit forward without an all out assault, it's stronger than most PN's but lighter than anything else. It's so complex and wonderful. If you are in the area, do visit. They're great people and they pour really good wine.
