Madson Wines, a collaboration between viticulturist Ken Swegles and winemaker Cole Thomas, is committed to expressing the terroir of small vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains. With Swegles’ devotion to organic and biodynamic viticulture and Thomas’ light-handed vinification the two have created a voice in their wines that is unobscured, elegant and precise.
