Learn about organic dry farmed wines, and sign up for tastings, tours, and fine wines direct from the vineyard. Madonna Estate’s new mailing list is a must for any wine lover who wants to further their education or get the best deals.
A couple of nights ago, I was sitting on the porch with my wife drinking a bottle of wine, and watching the stars.
After a short silence, she said, "I love you," and I asked, "Is that you, or the wine talking?"
She told me, "That's me talking to the wine."
I couldn't really argue with her, because while I know she loves me, the wine will be gone soon, and will never have the chance to hear it again - while I plan on sticking around for a while longer.
It did inspire me though, to sign us up to learn more about wine, what small differences in production lead to large differences in taste, how it's made traditionally, and all kinds of other fun facts.
One fantastic resource comes from Madonna Estate, which has a mailing list to raise awareness and champion five generations of winemaking for Carneros region varietals. The family-owned winery provides an interesting, and delicious, education about the history and tradition of fine wines from the Sonoma and Napa Valley while offering tastings, tours, club memberships, and direct sales through its online store.

Their new mailing list also features special prices on organic, handcrafted, and estate-bottled Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer, Muscat Canelli, Rosetto, and Barbera.
Established in 1922 by the Bartolucci family, Madonna Estate is a fifth-generation winery located in the world-renowned Carneros region of Napa Valley. As the second-oldest winemaking family in the Napa Valley, the Bartoluccis continue to preserve traditional winemaking methods. While the Madonna Estate is famed for its organic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, it produces ten different wines and 10,000 cases per year. In August 2022, the winery celebrated 100 years of business.
You can join their mailing list to learn more about the Bartolucci family and their passion for naturally farmed grapes. The Carneros region's fertile land and cool climate are conducive to chemical-free combinations of natural organic farming and dry farming.
"I believe that organic farming is much more than withholding the use of chemicals; it also involves nurturing the soil and plants and improving soil fertility," says third-generation grower Andrea Bartolucci.
Madonna Estates is open for indoor and outdoor tastings and can accommodate both individuals and groups. Though if you're looking for a more intimate setting, I suggest you ask about their Reserve Tasting Room. The estate also features a picnic area for lunchtime parties.
Signing up for their mailing list gives wine lovers old and new the latest news about the Madonna Estate and its team, as well as its wines, events, and special prices on select vintages. Information on Club Carneros—Madonna Estate’s wine club membership—is also available through the mailing list. It's not bad for your budget either, the winery's online store carries its full collection of wines at half the price of the competition.
"As the second oldest winemaking family in the Napa Valley, the Bartoluccis are dedicated to continuing the premium grape growing and fine winemaking that has been established by generations past,” said a spokesperson for the company. “It is their commitment to continue to farm naturally, to preserve, and to refine the winemaking traditions of their past, to bring you the finest wines possible."
Wine is more than just a great addition to your dinner or evening, it has a rich history, a vibrant tradition, and a brilliant future.
Did you know the oldest known winery was dated to 4100 BC?
That's 6,122 years, and wine is still going strong.
