The oldest operating winery in Glen Ellen, Madrone Estate embraced its original name from the 1880s and recently re-opened a beautiful new tasting room. With a sunny patio and bocce court amidst 100 year-old vines, thoughtful stewardship intersects with small-lot winemaking in one of Sonoma's most incomparable settings.
The Stewart family purchased the historic estate—then named Valley of the Moon—in 2012 and added a small-lot winery to focus on estate-driven wines. Valley of the Moon wines are still produced at the property and honor an important 75-year era when Italian proprietors made wines in the original stone barrel cellar. Valley of the Moon wines are available nationally in restaurants and wine stores.
