5/18/12: Happy Hour with Tyler Winery & Samsara Winery
Events & Tastings
Join us as we welcome Chad Melville of Samsara and Justin Willett of Tyler to the winebar on Friday May 18th. These two young guns are working tirelessly to produce vividly balanced reds and whites that reflect all the site-specific typicity of Central Coast terroir.
Considered one of the hottest up-and-coming talents Justin Willet founded Tyler winery in 2005 when he was just 23 years old. He is regarded as a specialist in crafting exemplary Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of delicacy from top vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Barbara AVAs
As one of the driving forces behind Melville Vineyards, Chad has had a significant impact on the growth and quality of the Santa Rita Hills region. Not content to just run the family winery, Chad started his own project in 2002. He produces bold, lively, high-pitched reds of Grenache, Syrah, and Pinot Noir from vineyards in Santa Rita Hills, Santa Barbara, and Mendocino.
