The first Madrigals actually arrived to the United States as railroad workers, but soon found work farming in the Napa valley. They picked apples, walnuts and grapes. And yes, they were one of the first, if not the first Mexican families in the upper valley. Madrigal winery and vineyard is located between St. Helena and Calistoga on the west side of Highway 29.
Today’s production is just under 10,000 cases. The winery specializes in Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Gewurztraminer, Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc. They produced their first vintage of 500 cases of Petite Sirah in 1995. The family history is a constant source of inspiration and the backbone of the family's commitment to excellence and its legacy of developing outstanding vineyards and award-winning wines.
