Born on the historic Madrone Vineyards, originally planted in 1863, Valley of the Moon Winery has been at the foundation of Sonoma Valley’s winemaking heritage for over 150 years.
As one of the first wineries in Sonoma Valley, Valley of the Moon Winery at Madrone Estate boasts some of the region’s oldest Zinfandel clones. Classic Italian varietals such as Sangiovese and Barbera flourish in our fertile soils offering a gentle bow to the Italian immigrants that established Sonoma’s winegrowing legacy more than a century ago. And of course Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, for which Sonoma Valley has become known, have found their home among our 60 acres of estate vines.
Take a historic walking tour through the original barrel cellar (built in 1887), learn about sustainable winegrowing and small lot winemaking, and taste the diverse wines and vineyards of Sonoma Valley. Relax on the sunny patio amidst 100-year old vines as you sip on estate wines from our portfolio. We welcome you to experience the rich, rooted traditions, a place where old vines meet state-of-the-art winemaking and viticulture.
