Business Overview

Our Story

Our Wine & Our Winemaker

Since the late 1930's, three generations of the Madrigal family have farmed some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. The family history is a constant source of inspiration, and guides us in our wine making now. We value the long relationship we've had with the land and the people here, believing that the combined wisdom of the folks who’ve been here for generations and a deep appreciation of these vineyards can be tasted in our wine.

Today, the company is run by Chris Madrigal, the founder's grandson, and vintner of Madrigal Family Winery.
