Overview: Although we believe that winemaking begins with quality farming practices, ultimately, the transformation of fruit to wine occurs in the cellar. At Madson, we aim to minimally interfere with the expression of terroir but to guide fermentations to show the resulting wine with vibrancy. We begin by finding ripeness based on physiological cues as well as the flavor of the fruit on the vines. All fermentation occur naturally and spontaneously, and we often utilize pied de cuves (or small mother fermentations that begin in the vineyard) to inoculate our fermenters. We find that the natural yeast strains found in the vineyard make fermentations that are slower and more diverse, ultimately showcasing a greater complexity of flavor.
