    Melon de -- Charter

    Melon de is maintained (with admitted enlightened self-interest) by Mike Lempriere, proprietor of Perennial Vintners.

    Our charter is simple and non-formal -- this website will present factual information about the Melon de Bourgogne winegrape, plantings, and wines in America.

    The website is mostly a labor of love, though it is also partially an admitted advertising mechanism. There are so few Melon de Bourgogne wines from American producers, that we (the producers) can all work together to raise awareness of this wonderful wine, and all benefit, even though we could be seen as competitors. I hope to have contributions to this website from all U.S. Melon de Bourgogne producers in the near future.
    Mike Lempriere

    Mike Lempriere and family run the tiny production Perennial Vintners winery in Bainbridge Island, in the Puget Sound American Viticultural Area (PS AVA) of Washington State, U.S.A. They've planted their own grapes, and are proving that the cool maritime climate near Seattle is suited to excellent winegrowing.

    In addition to a full-time "day-gig" in Seattle as a computer programmer for Cisco Systems Inc., Mr. Lempriere runs a small-scale website hosting business, Vintners.Net; he also maintains (as a hobby project) "MikeL's WA Winery Guide", a compilation of historical information on all Washington State wineries. (Mr. Lempriere is a very busy fellow.)
