Experience Madroña

Madroña’s exceptional mountain elevation vineyards offer perfect growing conditions for the wide range of Rhône and Bordeaux varietals we grow here. Well-drained soil and mild temperatures throughout the year produce grapes with mild acidity and optimal maturity. This distinctive fruit creates the perfect foundation for our unique family of estate grown and bottled wines.

Situated at 3,000 feet in the El Dorado County Appellation, Madroña consists of three family-owned vineyards — our Madroña vineyard, located in Apple Hill and our Enyé and Sumu-Kaw vineyards, located in nearby Pleasant Valley. These three unique vineyard sites are planted with over 26 varietals, carefully selected for their unique winemaking characteristics and blending qualities.


Wines

Hillside Wines

Hillside Collection wines are quality, estate grown, varietal wines carefully crafted to compliment a wide variety of foods and perfect for everyday meals and casual occasions.

Grapes come from our three El Dorado Appellation vineyards, whose mild climate and deep soils provide perfect growing conditions for the wide range of varieties that are the foundation for these wines.

Signature Collection

The Madroña Signature Collection features elegant wines that showcase the finest fruit from our three vineyard properties and are particularly successful expressions of varietal style, character and quality.

Handcrafted and artistically blended, our Signature Collection Reserve wines profoundly express the unique characteristics of each varietal.

Single Vineyard Wines

Madroña Single Vineyard wines are small lot offerings sourcing distinctive fruit from each of our three vineyards – Madroña Vineyard, Enyé Vineyard and Sumu-Kaw Vineyard. Each highlights the unique varietal characteristics and terroir of the specific vineyard site from which the fruit is harvested.

As we taste through the barrels before final blending, we invariably come across a barrel that is positively special. The character may be intense, subtle, unusually fruity or complex. It screams to be bottled separately to retain the unique aspects that show the exquisite nature of our diverse vineyards. Single vineyard lots, which are traditionally bottled unfined and unfiltered, exhibit a purity and a sense of place seldom seen in California wine.

New-World Port

From one of the first wines Madrona ever made port-styled wines have become a mainstay of our portfolio. A blend of seven estate grown Portugese varieties, our New-World Port embodies both elegance and balance.
