Mellen Meyer Sparkling Wine
I am a firm believer the Universe will connect certain people at unique times that are meant to know each other, often without us knowing why.
Terri-Lynn and I would often times spend a weekend afternoon visiting 4-5 different stores in Portland for what we called “samples”. Food and beverage representatives would spend a few hours introducing their new products to shoppers and this is how we met winemaker Bobby Rowett.
It was at New Seasons in North East Portland and he was there with his sparkling wines. We were honestly blown away with what we found in the glass and in a few weeks we met him at the top of the Dundee Hills to film his relatively new label “Mellen Meyer Sparkling Wine” for Sip & Stay.
The other thing I noticed while exploring the nuances coming from the glass was how drinkable this wine is, how well it would pair with food and how the wine captured the essence of the winemaker, Bobby is a truly nice guy. Check out his website.
Below is the film we produced for Mellen Meyer. Bobby describes how the cool growing region of the area produces the perfect fruit for the wines and also the process of how the wines age and ferment in the bottle creating the celebratory bubbles.
