Since the 1930's three generations of the Madrigal family have farmed some of Napa Valley's finest vineyards through their own vineyard management company, and today they manage over 800 acres. Currently owned by the third-generation Madrigal, Chris creates wines that convey that deep appreciation for the land.
Wine Making is such a beautiful and artistic science. It is truly an expression of the wine maker and how he/ she sees that grape in it's purest form. We hope that you will find Hugo's wines to be as masterful as we do!
With a history of being Sunny St. Helena Winery in 1933, later to be owned by the Christian Brothers, in 1991 Merryvale Vineyards was born. One of the few wineries permitted to allow weddings, the Cask Room is a spectacular setting for any number of private events, with two-story century old 2,000 gallon casks lining the stone walls.
