Private Blending and Bottling Party for 8 at Madroña Vineyards
Be the winemaker! “AWESOME”-blage.  Join Paul and Maggie Bush for a private blending party for 8. The event will be held in February 2016 in the barrel room at Madroña.  The participants will be blending a Bordeaux style (assemblage) blend using 5 varietals from barrel. These are the same wines that go into the Madroña flagship wine Quintet which currently sells for $32/bottle. Once the final blend is determined, Madroña will barrel the wines down, and bottle them when ready.  Karen and Peter Wolfe have agreed to design a special Imagination Theater label. Once bottled, each participate will receive 6 bottles of wine for their own personal cellar. The remaining cases will be donated to IT! to sell at performances.
