Melville is an organic, family owned estate that has been making exceptional Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah since 1997. This Pinot Noir received 95 points from Wine Enthusiast.

40% of the fruit was fermented as whole-clusters with 60% gently de-stemmed. From the press, the wine was transferred directly into neutral barrel (15+ year old French oak), where it remained sur lie without sulfur until July, when it was gently racked for the first time and prepared for bottling in August. Yields were 1.7lbs/vine (1.5 tons/acre).

Variety Pinot Noir from Melville Estate (17 clone blend)

Established in 1999 in Woodinville, Washington, by Mark Ryan McNeilly, Mark Ryan Winery is an acclaimed Washington winery. McNeilly is a largely self-taught winemaker, having crushed and produced his first vintages in garages of friends and family. In the years since its founding, the winery has grown in size, earning respect and acclaim from both wine lovers and critics. In 2017, production shifted from Woodinville to Walla Walla, allowing tasting rooms to open in both cities and helping Mark Ryan become the 14th largest winery in Washington. McNeilly introduced his Board Track Racer line in 2008 and established Megan Anne Cellars, which showcases Oregon pinot noir, in 2016. The Mark Ryan wine family continues to expand and now includes the Lu & Oly, Flowerhead, Board Track Racer, NumbSkull, Underground Wine Project and Mark Ryan Winery brands.

From the first vintage onward, Mark has been a champion of Washington wines. Having made significant contributions to the Washington wine community, McNeilly has helped establish Washington as a prominent U.S. wine region.

Specializing on Red Mountain. We produce wine from grapes grown in the high desert, on a very warm site. They are big-shouldered wines that we coax a great amount of finesse and elegance.

We utilize specific vineyard sites to create our style, and have continued adding a portfolio of the most sought-after vineyards in Horse Heaven Hills, Yakima Valley, and Columbia Valley.
