Parallel Wines

Welcome to Parallel Napa Valley -
Celebrating 25 Years in 2024!

The Parallel Napa Valley label captures the essence of the lines carved by skis on the first run of the day. The Founding Partners wanted their 40+ years of friendship and life in Park City to be reflected in the wines. The label has served to reflect our 25 years of planting, tending, harvesting and making wines from the parallel rows of vines floating across hillside vineyards in Napa Valley and the Russian River Valley. Today we treasure our common, parallel experience and look ahead to more fond memories. We hope you will enjoy a glass of Parallel Wines, as you create your own memories.

Our Passions

Parallel Napa Valley is thrilled to celebrate its 24th year in 2023 making highly rated, small production wines from notable vineyards with Winemaker Philippe Melka. We are committed to supporting our communities in Napa Valley, Park City and beyond through philanthropic work, to sustainable practices from grape sourcing to shipment packaging, and to having tons of fun producing and drinking stellar wines, skiing, and enjoying life!

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"There are 262 cases of the stunning 2019 Black Diamond Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Prima, a blend from two famous vineyards. There's a rich, earthy element and hints of licorice, and both lend nuances to the ripe cassis fruit in this full-bodied effort, which comes across as densly concentrated yet supple and silky...Approachable now, yet with the stuffing to last at least a decade, it's a lovely Cabernet that really expresses its (largely) Rutherford origins."

"The 2021 vintage was a classic growing season with a bit lighter crop than usual, which brought great concentration to the wines. This wine is dark in color and has a super expressive nose of spices like cardamon, wild sage and allspice. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with great tetxure, well-rounded tannins and a hint of sweetness from the French Oak. Layers of ripe plums, black cherry, cassis and dark chocolate come to mind. The wine has a great, long finish carried by the acidity and fruit concentration. It is already very enjoyable and will evolve beautifully over the next 10+ years."
