Founded by Philippe and Cherie Melka in 1996, Melka Estates crafts limited production single vineyard wines from Napa Valley, Knights Valley and Bordeaux, as well as a more widely available CJ Cabernet sauvignon blend.
The Montbleau Vineyard and Melka Winery are situated on the eleven acre estate located in the St. Helena appellation. The beautiful hillside vineyard yields approximately 125 cases of exquisite high end Cabernet sauvignon.
Visitors are contacted prior to their experience to determine which wines will be tasted, guests will be given directions. Upon arrival, the guests are treated to a welcome glass of one of our wines while an overview of our family run operation is delivered by our Brand Manager. Occasionally there will be a brief tour of the production facility. Guests are then seated to a formal tasting of 3-4 wines, some of which are not available in the market. The experience usually lasts just under 2 hours.
Wine clubs are a great way to stay connected to your favorite wineries.
