Sangiovese

Sangiovese is an ancient Italian grape dating back to the Roman times. The literal translation of Sangiovese in Latin is sanguis Jovis meaning the “blood of Jove.” It is in reference to the Roman god Jupiter, and was used in religious ceremonies. It has since found its way to the shores of Lake Chelan, and it is waiting to find its way into your glass.

Barbera

Native to the Piedmont Region of Italy, this noble variety is known for its big bold flavor and high acidity. If you’re eating Italian food you better have some Barbera in your glass!

Cabernet Sauvignon “M” Barrel Select 2013

This Cab has longevity! Incredibly rich and complex. It’s was a single barrel selection that shined above the rest. Drink 2020 - 2030 or decant prior to that.

Malbec

Also an original Bordeaux grape, but was made famous by wines made in Argentina and Chile. Here in Washington the grapes produce deliciously dark and fruity wines.

Forte Roso

“Forte Roso” means Bold Red in Italian, and we’ve certainly succeeded with this blend of 50% Cab and 50% Malbec.

White Wines

Gewürztraminer

Even though this grape variety has a German name, it actually originated in Northern Italy from a variety call Traminer. A deliciously aromatic varietal, it often tastes of lychee, roses, and passion fruit.

Riesling

Born out of the Rheingau region of Germany, known for is high acidity and incredible longevity for a white wine. One of Rob’s (the owner of Mellisoni) favorite varietals, he fell in love with Riesling after tasting an outstanding Zind-Humbrecht Riesling. Since then we have strived to make our Riesling in the Zind-Humbrecht style.
