I bought the 25 acre parcel on Mellowood Drive in September of 2000, and have been working steadily since then toward creating delicious wines that would bring you to the incredible Sierra Foothills with each sip. While the majority of the wooded parcel remain native, I carved out 9 acres and planted Zinfandel and Syrah, both perfectly suited to the growing conditions of this unique appellation of Fair Play. The vines were planted in 2002, and the first Mellowood wines were bottled in 2008. Now, the Mellowood tasting room is open for you to enjoy the soft, elegant, balanced wines.
