Parallel Wines


Winemaker Philippe Melka was born, educated and trained in Bordeaux. He worked at some amazing Chateaux, including Petrus and Haut-Brion. In addition to working side-by-side with his friends at Parallel Wines, he crafts several more of Napa Valley's most sought-after wines.

Now located at a state-of-the-art winery in St. Helena, Parallel Wines features an array of guided experiences by appointment that showcases the best that Napa Valley has to offer. From a guided tasting of our highly rated wines to a multiple-course food and wine pairing lunch, Parallel is sure to enhance your visit to Napa Valley.

Guided tasting - $25

An intimate guided tasting of our current releases and discussion in the opulent Winemaker's Den. A relaxing and luxurious experience to taste some of the best Napa Valley has to offer in a superior setting.

Guided Tasting and Cheese Pairing - $35

Wine is a product of fermented grapes while cheese is a product of fermented milk - and nobody can argue the bliss for your taste buds when the two are perfectly paired. We have selected three cheeses to match with our three current releases to enhance your tasting and provide an enjoyable break in your wine tasting travels. Your host will walk you through our current releases in the charming Winemaker's Den. The cheese selections were specifically selected by the chef along with the Parallel staff and Sommelier to enhance the wines.

Guided Tasting and Food Pairing - $45

For those that want to learn more about food and wine pairing as well as serving wine with food, this experience is a real treat. The chef at Brasswood has prepared a small plate of three appetizers to pair with our current releases. These delectable bites will change and enhance the wine, as your host walks you through some tips for pairing foods at home.

Guided Lunch and wine tasting - $95

Don't stop your day for a restaurant reservation - why not combine your wine tasting and lunch on your trip? We have partnered with the chef at Brasswood to create a multiple course, small plate luncheon to pair with our three current release wines. Your table is waiting where you'll sit down with your host to discuss the wine and food over your meal. Wine, food, and gratuity included.
