Wine Country: Calistoga, Madrigal Family Winery

Madrigal Family Winery  3718 North St. Helena Hwy./Larkmead Lane, (707) 942-1065. Tasting by appt., daily 10-4.  Since the late 1930s, when grandfather Jess came to the Napa Valley from Mexico, three generations of the Madrigal family have farmed the Napa Valley vineyards.  Grandson Chris Madrigal studied wine making at U.C. Davis and now heads the current generation and this small winery that sells most of its production through its wine club and tasting room.  If you join the wine club, tasting is complimentary and you can take part in some special tasting programs, including a pairing with food from Calistoga’s Jolie restaurant or a lunch with owner Chris.
