Hope to see you soon.
Welcome!
     At Madison Vineyards Estate Winery and
Bed & Breakfast we are dedicated to the
production of quality wines from our own
estate grown grapes.  Located five miles north
of the Ohio River and the historic river town
from which we take our name, award winning
Madison Vineyards focuses on producing
wines from grape varieties currently being
grown in our beautiful 40-acre property.


    
The winery offers free wine tasting and wine
related gift items. Enjoy a variety of cheeses,
summer sausages and crackers on the large
deck overlooking the vineyards or in our grassy
picnic area.


    
Our vineyard, planted on well-drained, south
facing hillsides in the heart of the Ohio River Valley Viticulture Area, matches soil, sunshine and variety to grow beautifully matured grapes which produce International Gold Medal wines.


    
We hope you enjoy your travels through our website and look forward to meeting you soon in our tasting room or during a stay at the B&B.  Take a minute to Escape to Madison Vineyards Estate Winery and Bed & Breakfast and join us in our family's toast; "To Friends, To Family & To the Good Earth!"
Our Wine Heritage
     In 1802, following a failed attempt near the
Kentucky River outside of Lexington, a group of Swiss immigrants established the first successful commercial winery in the United States near what became Vevay, Indiana (20 miles east of Madison).  By the middle of the 19th century thousands of grapes were being grown along the Ohio River Valley, from Cincinnati to Louisville, an area which was then known as "The Rhineland of America".  Wine pioneers like John James Defour & Nicholas Longworth established vineyards and sold their wines from the Mississippi frontier to the Jefferson
White House.  Bank failures, vine diseases and
Prohibition combined to destroy those vineyards. Today, at Madison Vineyards, we are commited to the revitalization of that lost heritage.  Our small family owned and operated winery is dedicated to the rebirth and re-establishment of Ohio River Valley winegrowing.
