The Madrones

Philo, CA

Welcome to The Madrones

Neither B&B nor a hotel, The Madrones’ private Estate Guest Quarters and Garden Quarters are designed to feel like an extension of home. Influenced by the Italian Agriturismo concept of staying on a working farm or winery, the quarters are perfect for an intimate stay in rural wine country.

Awaken Your Senses

Get ready to tour Balo’s winemaking facilities and vineyards and learn about all aspects of the wine process firsthand from their own winemakers. Then, enjoy an Alchemy of Wine & Food class, where you’ll come to appreciate the delicate interaction of wine and spices in this sensorial seminar.

Why We Love It Here

Originally a design center and creative think tank, this Mediterranean compound, with its peaceful courtyards and arcades, is now home to four separate wine tasting rooms representing some of the finest handcrafted and small lot wineries in California’s Anderson Valley.

Unlike some of the larger more developed wine regions, we often find one of The Madrones’ winemakers pouring in the tasting room and joyfully sharing his or her craft.  Each winemaker—much like each wine—has a unique perspective, style and approach. 

What they all have in common, however, is a deep passion for handcrafted small-lot wines created using local fruit from the surrounding appellations.

With glass in-hand, you’re welcome to stroll the surrounding courtyards and arcades, which offer a perfect Al fresco environment to relax. When you retire to your room, you’ll enjoy well-appointed accommodations that mesh the stunning rustic environment and all the special touches of a luxury resort.
