2018 Barbera–Hillside Collection
Barbera, known for its great berry fruit and high acidity, is an Italian variety most famously coming from the northern part of Italy in Piedmont. In California, wineries let the crop hang for further ripening to allow the acidity to drop to a palatable level. Fruit characters are riper, with dark cherry and dried fruit aspects dominating. At our 3,000 ft elevation, the fruit characters are fresher with high-tone cranberry mixed in with the cherry and blackberry, making a rich, age worthy wine of exceptional quality.
This region of the country is known all over the world for its remarkable Mediterranean climate that produces some of the best wines around. And while we love the wineries closer to the coast, the remote foothill wineries of the Sierra Nevada are unparalleled and off the beaten path. Madroña is a scenic winery in the Apple Hill region that you will fall in love with.
The Madrona wine all started by a pioneer who found an exceptional landscape that is divestible to the hillside vineyard,
which was located in El Dorado, California in 1973. It was
originally founded by the Senior Bush who wanted to create
this unique wine that has great acidity with perfect balance to
create this comfort when drinking the wine. This authentic
wine was discovered from a 350 year old Madrona tree, which
represented the location to grow the best terroir of the Madrona vineyards. These Madrona trees are found in the greatest growing regions through El Dorado, Sierra Foothills
