There is a lot of white stuff outside the wines this morning here in Madrona, but we are still OPEN TODAY at Madrona Wine. After you have made your snow angel and had a brisk snow ball fight, take a break from the snow and come try some big reds to take the chill out of the weather. Special Snow Hours — Noon to 6pm
