The City

The Spanish term for “wood” or “lumber,” Madera was founded in 1876 by the California Lumber Co. From that year until 1931 a wooden water flume floated cut timber 63 miles from forests in the Sierra Nevada to the railhead at this central California city.
Today, though, it's all about vino. The Madera Wine Trail connects a dozen or so wineries in the vicinity and north along SR 41 to Oakhurst. Madera County is one of the nation's oldest grape-growing regions, and the Madera Vintners Association sponsors wine trail events in February, May and November. For more information phone (800) 613-0709.
