Madsen Family Cellars

About

Our winery is where we make all our wines and host visitors in our tasting room. We proudly pour fifteen beautiful wines that were all produced with grapes from the east side of the state. All grapes come handpicked from Washington vineyards chosen for their unique combinations of flavor and color. At the tasting room you can sample up to six of our 15 blends, from lightly oaked Chardonnay, to dry Gewurztraminer, Rhapsody (a white and raspberry wine blend), Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, two Cabernet Sauvignons, two Bordeaux blends named Lady MacBeth & Othello, Petite Verdot, Madzin (Zinfandel) Orange Muscat and a Port dessert wine.

Winemaker

We have been blessed with personal contacts with established winemakers in Eastern Washington who have introduced us to excellent growers for our grapes.

History

It is a somewhat unusual whimsical story. After making wine in 5 gallon carboys in the garage for a while my wife San and I spent a weekend in Oregon Wine Country touring and tasting. On our way home we looked across the car at each other and said “you know, we could do that.” And so the dream was kindled. We did a good deal of planning, made several excursions to Eastern Washington, and talked to as many winemakers as we could get to stand still and talk with us. During these trips we made our first contact for a fruit source at the Seth Ryan Winery on Red Mountain.

Practices & Techniques

Our wines are all made individually and blended artfully for taste and complexity after aging.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

We source from Wahluke Slope, Red Mt., North Pasco, Prosser, Horse Heaven Hills, and Rattlesnake Hills.

Awards

Our wines have been winning awards in local and national contests for years starting with our 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, and earned several 90+ scores from Wine Advocate in 2010 and 2011.
