Fall rustled into Madrona this last week bringing with it a reawakening of our love for darker red wines. We’ll be tasting some of these all weekend at Madrona Wine. It’s a great line up.
Saturday we are celebrating the diverse flavors of Italy with wines from Umbria, Campania, Piedmont and Veneto along with a new organic olive oil from the Marche region. The Taurasi is not to be missed.
