Reds are the strong suit at Napa Valley winery’s Sausalito outpost.
Retreat from downtown Sausalito’s bustle at the serene storefront tasting room of the Napa Valley’s Madrigal Family Winery. Art by local and regional artists adorns the walls, and contemporary upscale furnishings decorate the space. Reds, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, and Petite Sirah, are Madrigal’s strong suit. Tastings often start with clean and sprightly Sauvignon Blanc or Rosé of Grenache, both refreshing on a hot summer day. Dessert wine lovers will want to sample the Petite Sirah Port. The engaging staffers are generous with their pours, Sausalito lore, and dining and shopping tips.
