We love this winemaker dinner because makes you in charge of you experience.  6 different tapas-sized options, each paired with a Madroña wine.  You choose 3.  Paul, Maggie and the Madroña staff are on hand to visit with you through the tasting and answer any questions.  It’s a great way to try a variety of menu options and wine!  This winter dinner will be held in the cellar and will sell out quickly.  While it is drop-in, we suggest reservations as space is limited.  Reservations are made directly with Smith Flat House at 530-621-1003.

MARCH 2015

LOST ‘N FOUND
Sunday, March 15th at 10am sharp!
Madroña Cellar

Here a case, there a case, we always have some oddballs!  Each year as we complete our year-end inventory, we uncover pesky leftover cases of wine.  They might be an older vintage we are no longer selling, they miht have crooked labels, or they (heaven forbid!) might have scuffed foils.  The wine is great, but we need to clean up our inventory.  Can you help us?  Wines are sorted onto tables of $5, $10, and $15.  Customers are limited to 3 bottles per variety, per vintage and they go fast!  Be sure to come early!
