Meet Star Winemaker Chad Melville of Melville Winery in Santa Barbara
Tuesday, February 6, 2018
6:00 p.m. at Sansei Waikīkī
 
 
Mark your calendars! This is going to be an incredible evening!
Talented winemaker Chad Melville’s family owns and operates the iconic Melville Winery in the Santa Barbara appellation. It’s one of the area’s “hottest” tickets and deservedly so. The media have showered it with high praise and high scores during all the years that Chad has overseen the vineyards. He also makes truly superb, equally heralded wines under his own Samsara label. This man is a true talent! 
A few years ago, Chad started to make the Melville wines, too. It’s a very interesting new era for him and for the winery. On this night, we will be pairing some of his wines with a contemporary Asian menu created by our
Sansei Waikīkī Executive Chef Adrian Solorzano.
