Valley of the Moon Wines, by Madrone Estate
Valley of the Moon wines honor an important 75-year era when Italian proprietors Enrico Domenici and Henry Parducci grew grapes and made wines at the winery they called Valley of the Moon. We continue to produce Valley of the Moon Pinot Blanc Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Blend 41 from some of Sonoma County's best vineyards. Valley of the Moon wines are available nationally in restaurants and in wine stores.
The go-to wine for warm sunny days. Pairs perfectly with good friends.
Our 2014 Pinot Blanc is a fresh, tropical wine that pairs well with most anything from salty, hard cheeses to sushi and Thai cuisine. We recommend that it be served slightly chilled to allow you to enjoy its harmonious aromatics. This crisply refreshing Sonoma County wine is ready to drink right now.
Spicy, dark cherry entry leading to a pleasantly structured mid-palate filled with well-defined tannins and oak. This zesty zin is ready to drink right now or may be laid down for future enjoyment.
Opulent flavors of guava and kiwi highlight this classic Sonoma Chardonnay. Hints of caramelized oak and vanilla flavors make for a well-rounded Chardonnay with great balance and lingering viscosity. This new release is ready to drink right now.
A crisp, pleasant wine featuring ripe melon, followed by white peach accented with lemon grass on the palate.
Enjoy soft notes of strawberry and cherry on the nose, with a lightly spiced, sweet cherry entry. The mid-palate is accented with cinnamon stick and toasted oak. The finish is well-balanced, supple and exquisitely smooth. This Pinot is delicious and pairs well with most meals.
This wine is perfect for spicy BBQ dishes, lighter fare or a homemade pizza- it is the most personable friend who gets along well with others!
Our small lot series Chardonnay exhibits bright and exuberant Meyer lemon and vanilla aromas. Opening with delectable creaminess, tangerine and sweet oak are subtly present on the mid-palate. A lush, oily viscosity lingers throughout ending with a pleasingly long and rich finish.
Cab Lovers... this wine is for you! Our lush, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon offers fresh notes of blueberry and cinnamon on the nose. Juicy chocolate-covered cherry, espresso bean & warm spice flavors mingle with caramelized oak accents leading to a long, smooth finish. This 2014 vintage has a fabulous color, aroma, and taste profile!
This Old Vine Zinfandel showcases some of the best that Zinfandel has to offer: bright red fruit characteristics mingled with hints of white pepper and allspice, and a rich, lingering finish. The vines that we source for this wine are from our estate, some of them dating back as far as 1887.
