"Our new favorite Oregon sparkling wine: Mellen Meyer...A breath of fresh air in the Oregon sparkling wine scene. Beautifully clean and refreshing, with superb balance and persistence to the citrus and green apple notes, accented by brioche and clove". - Marcus
Our exceptional cool-climate vineyards are the prime source for world-class sparkling wine grapes in North America.
In 2013 Bobby Rowett started Mellen Meyer to engage the phenomenology of wine as a sparkling wine maker. That first year he made 70 cases in a small corner of Goodfellow Family Cellars where Bobby was assistant winemaker. Mellen Meyer is now located atop the Dundee Hills at Winter’s Hill Estate, where we are producing around 1000 cases of Willamette Valley sparkling wine a year.
We work with the worlds most expressive grape varieties: Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Our vineyard sources are the best in the valley for our specific purpose. They are cool, windy, sustainable, tended and harvested by hand, and most importantly never irrigated.
