We still remember our “Eureka” moment of discovery a few years back at the Premiere Napa Valley auction when Parallel first hit our radar. One sip from the barrel, and we knew we were on to something. Then a largely unknown brand born of three couples with a shared love of wine and skiing, they chose very wisely in bringing coveted winemaker Philippe Melka on board to guide things in the cellar. Now more than ten years on, they’ve aggressively upped their game in the vineyard and followed Philippe’s expert advice on properties worth pursuing and how best to farm them to fit his vision. We think that once you pull the corks here – especially when you start factoring the “taste-per-dollar” element – you’re going to be glad we convinced you to hit the slopes with us.
