We like drinking balanced wines. A little of this, a little of that. Wines that are fun, vibrant, and go well with food. Daniel, the wine enthusiast of the family, has picked wines that flow with the season. Local comes first just like our belief in food, meaning we support Malibu, Santa Ynez, and Central Coast wines.
But value is also important, and that means going international more and more these days. So when we find a wine that demands our interest we don’t want to deprive our guest, based solely on a price point. So look for rosé from Provence, sparkling wine from the Bouzy region, Gruner Veltliner from Austria, as well as Aglianico, Tempranillo, and Rhone blends that represent the heart and soul of affordable red wine drinking for us.
We also make our own wine at Chez Melange offering a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir crafted by Norman Yost of Flying Goat Cellars, and a Dolcetto blend made by Steve Clifton of Brewer-Clifton and Palmina wines.
