In its first few years, Parallel Napa Valley has grown to be one of the most exciting new Napa mountainside wineries in California. The wines are the result of a collaboration of eight close friends and two of the top winemaking professionals in the industry today: Philippe Melka and highly acclaimed Vineyard Manager Jim Barbour.
All successful entrepreneurs in their own right, the Parallel partners love a challenge and relish the chance to participate hands-on. As such, they have been fully involved in every aspect of creating Parallel, from the planting of the first vine to sampling the first sip of each new vintage. It's this energy and synergy that makes Parallel wines so special.
