The Unique Pairing
We grow Pinot Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache on our unique thirty-three-acre estate on the northern edge of Sonoma Valley. After transforming the estate into an Organic and Biodynamic haven, we were determined to partner with a world-class winemaking team whose passion and vision matched our own.
"In Bordeaux there is a saying that you aren't ready to make Pinot Noir until you are 50. So, I'm finally ready." - Philippe Melka, when asked about his partnership with Westwood.
Meanwhile, Philippe and Maayan, legendary for their Cabernet-driven wines from Bordeaux and Napa, wanted to work with the best wineries and vineyards in the world, pushing their boundaries beyond Napa and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was an immediate marriage.
“Westwood has already been gaining great acclaim and attention for the award-winning wines crafted from this unique and unexpected gem of a vineyard. Looking ahead, we’re excited to unlock the soul of this special site and take the wines even higher.” - Philippe Melka
