    Our favorite vineyard by far in El Dorado County. Our annual visits from Wisconsin absolutely MUST include a visit and tasting at Madrona. IMO, the best wines and hospitality!

    The staff were great. I appreciated the flight options. I brought my own food and had no issues. They had a Port wine and I had it with a dessert I had with me. All around great experience.

    Of all our club wine club memberships over the years Madroná is still a strong favorite. Paul and Maggie along with their wonderful team make every trip here relaxed and very enjoyable. Great wine and a great overall value, warm and casual welcoming atmosphere.

    We took our daughter, grandson who was celebrating his 21st birthday and his friend. We had been there before and this second visit was equally wonderful. The setting is a lovely outdoor, shaded area under the trees. The wine offerings were delightful. Thank you for a great value and enjoyable experience.

    Great outdoors venue for wine tasting. They have a variety of interesting flights, including whites and reds. They wines were excellent (the three of us split some flights and sampled each wine). The service was great, personable and attentive without being intrusive. We took home a good sampling of the wines and will definitely return.

    It was a small family outing and we love the Apple Hill area. The wine tasting at Madrona experience caught my eye so we reserved a time. The table was in a shady area under beautiful trees. The service was unobtrusive and helpful. We did not eat anything so reason for a lower rating in that category. I recommend the experience. We did buy a bottle to take home.

    Madrona has excellent wines at affordable prices. The staff is proficient and fun! The tasting areas are great whether upstairs, outside or in the barrel room. A special feature is the ability to view short videos of the winemaker-Paul Bush- describing the wines you are drinking.

    My group was new to wine tasting and were under the impression that somebody would help guide us through it. While the staff was nice, nobody actually talked to us about the wines, the history or anything really. We were just given the wines and left to our own devices. Perhaps that what a tasting is supposed to be like, but we would have definitely liked some guidance.

    Madrona is one of the oldest wineries in Apple Hill, and one of our favorites! Besides Sprocket, the watch dog, Paul is Madona’s greatest asset. He wanders among the tables while we are wine tasting and provides insights of the wines and wine making process. Great time, great environment!
