Mellen Meyer Sparkling Wine


Beautiful sparkling wines, locations and loved ones create lasting memories

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 gorgeous setting where Bobby produces his Sparkling wine at Winter’s Hill Estate

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.

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
