Female-owned Wine Brand Mela Launches

Founded by four women of color, the California label offers a White and a Red blend.

New California wine brand Mela is launching its first products. Based in Napa, the name Mela is short for “melanin,” nodding to the skin tones of its four female co-founders. The brand is debuting with two releases: a 2021 White Blend ($28 a 750-ml.) and a 2020 Red Blend ($40 a 750-ml.) The former is made from Gewürztraminer, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Riesling, sourced from Napa Valley, Mendocino, and Clarksburg, California. The red is a blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Malbec, and Syrah, sourced from Napa Valley and Clarksburg. Both are available exclusively at Mela’s website. For more information, visit Melavino.com.
