Selene Wines is a tiny producer of hand-crafted Napa Valley wines. Selene's wines are the personal winemaking expression of Mia Klein, a consulting winemaker.
Mia Klein received her degree in Enology from U.C. Davis, and worked her way up from the cellar to assistant winemaker and then to winemaker. She worked at Chappellet and Robert Pepi. She then began her consulting career for wineries like Dalla Valle, Spottswoode, Araujo and Viader. Not long after she began consulting, she started Selene Wines.
Selene's output is exclusively focused on the Bordeaux varietals that thrive in great Napa Valley vineyards. Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc have been produced since 1991 and 1992 respectively. Cabernet Sauvignon and a Bordeaux blend (based on Cabernet Franc) called ‘Chesler’ have been produced since 2002. Chesler is a tribute to Mia’s mom, Eileen Chesler, and sports a label with her picture from the late 1940’s.
