The Soda Canyon vineyards were planned by Helen Turley and John Pina. It's easy to call them 'perfect' from a vineyard management stand point. The wine has been made by Philippe Melka who undeniably has a gift with California wines by allowing their ...

The wine has been made by Philippe Melka who undeniably has a gift with California wines by allowing their opulence to shine while offering the perfect balance in French Oak. The result at Roy Estate w... Read More
