Embracing a Sonoma Valley Tradition

Read More

Established in 1863, Valley of the Moon Winery at Madrone Estate is the original gateway to the stunning Sonoma Valley and the oldest operating winery in Glen Ellen. An original stone barrel cellar, sunny patios, a bocce court and open vistas welcome you to an incomparable wine country setting at the heart of Sonoma Valley's wine-making heritage. Relax on the sunny patio amidst 100-year old vines as you sip on estate wines from our portfolio. We invite you to experience our rich, rooted history by enjoying a taste of our small-lot wines.

Come join us. We look forward to serving you.

Walking Tour & Taste on 3/24/18 3:00 PM

I came in here for my 25th birthday with some friends. We did a walking tour with wine tasting. We loved the venue, and I ended up becoming a member. They also have another location in downtown sonoma which I thought was a little smaller than the main one, but def nice. Def recommend it!

Wonderful experience. Chef Sam took us through a fall culinary journey perfectly paired with wines. Enjoyed all the history of the vineyard as well as those working there’s history. (Shout out James!).

Patio Tasting on 4/15/17 11:00 AM

Great patio tasting - a bit cool early in the morning, but the space was great. The tasting fee is less on site than online which is frustrating for those who make a reservation online and see that everyone else is getting the same thing for $10 less. Make that clearer online or make pricing the same. Wines were adequate but not amazing. Still a great experience and I would come back again.

From the beautiful grounds to the amazing wines produced, Madrone should be a stop for everyone in the Napa/Sonoma area. Our host, Mark, was very knowledgeable and added to the experience.
