"Impeccable farming practices combined with expert winemaking to craft elegant, serious, yet comforting wines. You can taste the influence of classical Rhone with the rustic vibe that's Paso Robles." - Naushad Huda
Lone Madrone started in 1996, when Neil Collins (Winemaker and Vineyard Manager at Tablas Creek since 1998), with the support of his wife Marci and sister Jackie, brought his vision to fruition. The resultant wine was the inaugural vintage of Lone Madrone, so named for the tree that stands alone presiding over the vineyard. As they have slowly grown into the small Estate today, the philosophy has remained the same -- each wine should be distinct and what makes it distinct should be where the fruit was grown, how it was grown and who grew it.
Winemaker and the son and nephew of the Lone Madrone trio of owners, Jordan Collins, is coming down to lead a special tasting of wines. Jordan's fascination with wine began in earnest while growing up on the Tablas Creek property and his early years began with internships at local wineries, specifically iconic L’Aventure and Tablas Creek Vineyard.
Jordan has worked in France at the esteemed winery Chateau De Beaucastel, VillaCreek Cellars in Paso Robles, and Two Hands in the Barossa Valley of Australia. Following these internships and travel opportunities he returned to the family business to begin what is hopefully a long career within a close knit family of wine fanatics.
