Valley of the Moon wines are crafted at Madrone Vineyards Estate -- a historic winery in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Pioneering farmers planted vines here in 1863, recognizing site, climate and soil. Historic old Zinfandel vines and a stone barrel cellar built in 1887 stand to honor the past while a contemporary tasting room and wine and culinary pairings provide a modern and fun wine country experience.

Our contemporary tasting room honors the Estate's rich history in a fusion of rustic warmth and modern style. Ease into rich leather armchairs, sip and savor at an ancient oak table, taste at our expansive bar, or on the relaxing patio adjacent to our bocce court!
