Madrona Lake Tahoe Zinfandel sm Picmonkey

CAMINO, CA – Nov. 11, 2013 – Madroña Vineyards, one of the premiere wineries in the Sierra Foothills, has turned its unique Lake Tahoe labeled wines into a fundraiser for the Tahoe Basin by donating a portion of sales to key groups supporting the region.

In its first try, Madroña raised more than $6,000 for four of the most respected organizations doing work to help protect the natural beauty and health of the Tahoe Basin and the county around it -- the Tahoe Fund’s Angora Bridge Project, Ag in the Classroom’s Tahoe Farm Day, the Schnell School Garden of Learning, and the American River Conservancy.

“Tahoe is such a wonderful, precious place,” said Maggie Bush, a co-owner of Madroña and the winery’s general manager. “At our winery and vineyards, we’re focused on protecting what nature gave us. The Tahoe Basin is such a beautiful natural treasure. We want do everything possible to protect that and to get as many people involved as we can.”

The special Madroña label is sold in wine shops, stores and restaurants in the Tahoe region, and at Trader Joe’s in Folsom, East Sacramento, Fair Oaks and around the region. It says Lake Tahoe across the top and bottom of the label and includes four scenes of the lake, each from a different season. The most recent vintages include a Zinfandel and a white blend. Coming soon is a Lake Tahoe label Chardonnay.

“To some people,” Bush said, “that $6,000 may not sound like a huge deal. But we’re a family winery and that’s a lot of money to us. Our goal is to raise even more with the new vintage and this is a combined effort to get people to drink local and to think about giving back to a place that matters so much to all of us.”
