Melville Vineyards and Winery-Our Last St. Ynez Valley Stop!

Our last stop on the trail of wines in the St. Ynez Valley took us to Lompoc, California where we found a Mediterranean-style estate winery tasting room and some great wines.
It's so beautiful, I had to post two of the photos I took. There's Don standing in the doorway!  

They have a picturesque garden area and courtyard where you can have lunch and drink their wines. The Melville wines are exclusively grown and produced from their vineyards and by their winery. The wine we tasted and bought that day was the
 2010 Estate Chardonnay-Verna's which sells for about $24 a bottle. Click on the name for tasting notes.

We also bought the 2010 Estate Syrah-Donna's, which is what we are drinking in the picture below. Click on the link to read the notes about this wine named after Ron Melville's wife, Donna. This wine has a silky texture with luscious fruit taste at an affordable price of $24.
