At Madonna Estate in the Carneros AVA they believe in family ventures, as that is exactly what they are. This lovely, generational vineyard holds a feeling of family, warmth, and love that seems to be placed within every bottle of their absolutely delicious premium wines. From their Pinot Noir to their new addition, Dolcetto, every wine features the aspects of the environment, the varietal, and the soil, rather than being “fiddled with” by their winemaker, whose philosophy is that the wines should be left as untouched as possible.
This has led to Madonna Estate gaining quite a following, with a laundry list of wines to choose from including:
Some of the wines listed you may have never experienced before, which is great, as you now have the opportunity to try something new! Coming from Madonna Estate, we are sure you’ll enjoy each one, no matter which varietal is your usual favorite. Their hands-on approach, paired with their rule of not altering the natural wines any more than necessary, creates wines that are so true to their soils and terroirs that you’ll truly learn what each varietal has to offer, rather than what the winemaker can do with the grapes.
Madonna Estate is a proud member of the California Certified Organic Farmers. This is the result of a strong belief in organic farming that goes back several generations in the family. Organic farming means much more than a lack of chemicals to this Estate and includes properly maintaining the health of the soil, as well as providing natural nutrients when necessary.
This is accomplished by tilling under wild grasses in between rows, which helps to return nutrients to the soil, which in turn feeds the vines and helps to produce succulent, healthy grapes for harvest. In addition, the careful planting at proper elevations and locations has allowed the vineyards to grow within a naturally mildew-resistant environment, which eliminates the need for chemicals as well!
No matter whether you want somewhere to host a special event or simply want to visit their tasting room which is open daily, you’ll find that your visit to this lovely family vineyard will leave you with memories to last for decades to come. Their wines are exquisite, the staff are knowledgeable and friendly, and the atmosphere is one of family and love paired with the natural other-worldly air that seems to walk hand-in-hand with any great vineyard atmosphere.
Be sure to stop back in and leave us a comment about your experience, the wines you tasted, and what you thought of this great vineyard. We’d love to hear from you and we look forward to seeing you at our own opening in South Florida later this year! In the meantime, from all of us at West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault, happy tasting!
