Fresno County gem of an attraction: The Madera Wine Trail

The Madera Wine Trail is a collaboration of nine family wineries in Madera County, belonging to the Madera Vintners Association. As such, the wineries are quaint; cute and relatively small. This gives you an opportunity to potentially meet the winemakers themselves (I can attest to that at Papagni’s). There are 8 great wineries who are officially recognized by the Madera Vitner’s Association.

I would consider the Madera Wine Trail the Central Valley’s hidden gem; a gem that should be visited especially if you live in Fresno or Fresno County (since the wineries aren’t very far!).

As of last week, it seems as though all of these wineries are open, at least on weekends. Be sure to check out the Madera Wine Trail map (the featured image of this post) for each winery’s hours, website, and number before visiting them.
