  • Grateful…



    “Grateful” is one of my favorite words. If you know me well, you might assume it’s because of the greatest band of all time, but, this word and concept have always resonated with me on a deeper level. As I prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, I find myself looking inward to consider what I’m especially grateful for this year, and I’d like to share some thoughts…

    Though I am, of course, grateful for the love and support of my friends and family, as well as our amazing customers, when I reflect on gratitude this year it’s our team here that really resonates. I can’t even begin to describe the hard work, commitment, and dedication each person contributes day in and day out, especially through this pandemic. From our full-time vineyard crew nurturing our land, to our office team meticulously fulfilling orders and ensuring you are always up-to-speed on all things Melville, to our tasting room associates passionately sharing our wines and story with you each day…our team is invested, our team is loyal, our team is the heart of Melville. I am profoundly grateful for each person I am privileged to work alongside. Thank you to everyone who has picked, punched down, emailed, and served up wine from this beautiful place. My name might be on the bottle, but please know, it’s their dedication and spirit captured in there as well.

    Thank you for being a supporter of Melville—both our wine and our team–we couldn’t do what we do without you.

    Peace and love, and Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Nothin’ left to do but smile, smile, smile…
