“Gorgeous atmosphere, best for dry red lovers”
Review of Birdstone Winery

Birdstone Winery
Ranked #6 of 13 things to do in Madera
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 September 2018

The atmosphere is gorgeous! The grounds are perfect for a wedding, and the interior of the tasting room is rife with easy gifts for the wine lovers in your life. Ambiance is lovely.

The wines are...complicated. If you LOVE good reds, this is home sweet home. If you like sweet wines, you are going to be bored. The Chardonnay is steel barrelled, and I suspect those barrels are new because I could smell it on their Chard and its blends. However, their reds are sooo good, that I can forgive that and own that I'll go back to get more before the new year is out (I'm local). Tasting is $8 a person but will be discounted on the first bottle purchased.

Tourists: Go here if you want interesting dry blends, both white and red. Also, if you love reds, this is a very important stop.

Locals: If you're going to do a ton of tastings, and they have a strong list of options, then yes, you can get those discounts.

The $8 discount on their $10 bottles of wine is an easy yes. $2, even if youre only in "like" and not in "love"? What an easy choice!

Just had our first tasting and will be back. Bought two bottles of Pinot Noir and one bottle of the Syrah. Thanks to Kim and Tony for making us feel welcome.

Birdstone is the real deal located in the heart of Madera wine country. The owners are lovely and are hands-on growers and vintners. You'll probably meet them when you visit their tasting room.

Their wines are exceptional and their farm and tasting room make for an authentic wine country visit. This is the closest you'll get to a Napa Valley wine tasting experience in Madera.

Birdstone Winery is one of the best wineries I have visited since coming to California. Beautiful, picturesque property, terrific wines, in terms of variety, quality, and price, and they have an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff. I visited the winery several times before joining their wine club to ensure the consistency of their service and every time was a wonderful experience. I am really looking forward to being a part of this wine family and invite others to join as well.

I attend the wine trail events at least twice a year so have visited most of the wineries in the area. Birdstone has a beautiful property. While the staff is knowledgeable and most are friendly, the gentleman I spoke with was kind of snotty. I also wasn't impressed with their wines. However, the venue itself is great. They do have special events that are worth attending. And when they bring in food, it's good quality for a good price.
