About This Winery
The Madrone Vineyards Estate family tree knits together more than 150 years of history at the heart of Sonoma Valley’s winemaking heritage. The oldest operating winery in Glen Ellen, Madrone Vineyards Estate opened a beautiful new tasting room, returned to its original name from the late 1800s, and offers new tastings, tours and a culinary program featuring Sonoma’s finest restaurants like The Fig Cafe, Glen Ellen Star, Olive & Vine, Aventine and Laura Chenel cheeses. With a sunny patio and bocce court amidst 100 year-old vines next to a historic stone barrel cellar built in 1887, sustainable farming and environmental stewardship intersect with small lot winemaking in one of Sonoma’s most incomparable settings.
The Stewart Family purchased the estate – then named Valley of the Moon – in 2012 adding a small-lot winery to focus on estate-driven wines from the historic property, renovating the tasting room and adding new local culinary and tasting programs. Valley of the Moon wines are produced at the property and honor an important 75-year era when Italian proprietors Enrico Parducci and Peter Domenici grew grapes and made wines at the estate. Valley of the Moon are available nationally in restaurants and wine stores.↑ Less
