Mellisoni Vineyards was inspired by a trip to Italy in 2002. The owners stayed at an incredible Italian Villa and Winery right in the heart of Tuscany, in the little town of Radda in Chianti, called Livernano.
They were there during the harvest and were encouraged to help with the harvest and crush of the grapes. There, treated like Royalty, with a private 5 star Chef that cooked our meals, they enjoyed incredible wines with the 8 other guests from around the world and became very close with the owner of the Winery.
After such an incredible experience and upon returning, they wanted to create a similar experience for people who come here to Lake Chelan to visit. They had experienced what they call “Agritourismo” , and believe that it will be something very special here in Chelan as well.
When they asked the owner if he had any advise he could give us for our Winery back in the States, he simply said “make your wine for your own tastes, your own pallet, it will be unique and will represent you. The benefit of making the wine to your own taste is that if no one else likes it, and it doesn’t sell, at least you’ll enjoy drinking it!” These are the wisest words, and they did exactly that, making wines to their own personal tastes. Come and taste some seriously good wine for your enjoyment.
