The fruit from the Enyé Vineyard is often harvested the latest of any of our vineyards due to the slightly cooler climate of this vineyard. The resulting wines tend to be more elegant, spicier and structured with denser tannins.

The Sumu-Kaw vineyard of David and Sheila Bush consistently produces rich, ripe grapes of great varietal intensity, perhaps due to its consistent temperate climate.

From Zinfandel to Riesling to Merlot to our New World Port,  the Madroña, Enyé and Sumu-Kaw vineyards produce grapes with mild acidity and perfect ripeness to create a balanced foundation for the estate wines that we produce and bottle at Madroña.

We spend a great deal of time in the vineyard, assessing each individual block’s growth and conditions and hand tending the grapes to ensure the highest quality. We strive to provide optimal growing conditions for each variety planted, managing irrigation, trellising, pruning and leaf thinning practices.  This extra care makes for better fruit, which results in exceptional wines.

A visit to Madroña reveals our continued commitment to sustainable farming and respect of the land. We are 100% solar powered and maintain a permanent native cover crop between vineyard rows. This care and commitment to vineyard management is the cornerstone of our grapegrowing philosophy and results in grapes  that are of the highest quality, the perfect fruit from which to make our wines.
