Well run. Great wine. Excellent staff. A pleasant change from larger wineries. Got a great tour of the property and the wine process. A small winery that's getting a bigger following every year.

We first visited Madrigal Vineyards several years ago while on a private wine tour. We return each time we are wine country. Chris Madrigal is so down to earth and so proud of his winery. If you are lucky enough to run into him during your visit, he will go out of his way to welcome you and proudly show you around, even taking you out to the vineyards to taste the grapes! We have introduced many of our friends to this great winery, it's great staff and oh so wonderful wines. It's like visiting an old friend! Cheers!

We had spent a wonderful week in Napa in April. While there we had enjoyed a private tour with Flex tours and our wonderful driver James suggested that we should check out Madrigal. With a lovely drive up the Silverado Trail we came across this wonderful winery, pleasantly greeted by Phoebe where upon she took us on a wonderful journey of their spectacular wines. Starting with a Sauvignon Blanc and working our way up to the Cabernet and then on to some reserve wines that are no longer available. We were so impressed with the amazing collection of wines that I felt no need to sample out any other winery for the duration of our trip. What a gem of a winery and we are so pleased we took James up on his advice to sample madrigal out. While I don't know the next time we'll make it back out to Napa considering we're coming from Massachusetts, we can still enjoy Madrigal since we became members of their wine club. So our journey continues!

This was our best stop! It was our first on our second day. I think getting an early start was what put us at an advantage.
We were treated like royalty. Our guide was excellent, she spend a very good amount of time with us and gave us excellent service. She sat us outside at the bench and that felt like it was just us and no one else was important.

Thank you! I've recommended your place to everyone I know.

The staff was knowledge , friendly, and make you feel like you are tasting wine in their home! The wines are fantastic from the whites to the reds. I love reds but the Sauvignon Blanc was superb. Cab lovers will not be disappointed. We even feel in love with the port. We visited on Sunday and had to bring friends back on Monday!!! Everyone enjoyed. Ask for Joel
