Description

The Madera Wine Trail hosts several Wine Showcase Days throughout the year, featuring a special wine varietal or occasion to highlight for the day and offer tastings. On April 6, participating wineries will celebrate our region’s sustainable “green” winegrowing and winemaking practices. While you taste a variety of delicious wines and “drink green”, learn a few things about what makes our wines eco-conscious and earth friendly:

  • Owl Box Programs

  • Grape growing using non-tillage and micro-irrigation management for efficiency.

  • Energy efficient building materials and equipment in winery buildings.

  • Vineyard composting using biproducts of wine filtering.

  • Programmable cyclic irrigation valves in vineyard.

  • Farming and planting methods for best land and water usage.

  • Certified Organic Winemaking Programs

  • Solar panels powering wineries, buildings and water wells

  • Recycling programs used at the wineries.

Participating wineries have wine production information, education on the wines and winemakers available to discuss the techniques that go behind making these award-winning wines. Some wineries offer food and treats to pair with the wines. The family wineries of the Madera Wine Trail look forward to celebrating the famous wines of Madera County with you!

Participating wineries: Birdstone Winery, Fasi Estate Winery, Papagni Wines, San Joaquin Winery, Toca Madera Winery
