Madonna Estate Winery
The idea behind Madonna Estate Winery is minimal intervention and as much natural growth as possible. Mild fog and cool temperatures create a unique microclimate in this area fed by coastal winds. Madonna Vineyard produces ten varietals including chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot grigio, and cabernet sauvignon. The tasting room is decorated in Italian Pompeii style to reflect the family’s heritage, and the Reserve room offers a tasting menu featuring five of their highest quality vintages.
