The Madera Wine Trail will host its 15th annual Wine & Chocolate Weekend, Feb. 11-12. Visitors can travel to seven Madera wineries and taste a wide variety of award-winning wines, sample gourmet chocolates, enjoy live music, boutique-style shopping and indulge in delicious food from area restaurants and food trucks.
Wine Trail Weekend is the perfect time for visitors to experience Madera’s rich wine heritage and unique family wineries. Whether you’re new to wine or a connoisseur, there is something for everyone on the trail.
Tours, over 100 wine selections, wine and food pairings, beautiful scenic views and relaxing outdoor patio lounging are just a few treasures guests will find around the Wine Trail. Some of the Valley’s most popular bands will also perform at various wineries.
