Attraction details
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Ficklin Winery in Madera is one of the local wineries located near the city where I live. From the time you walk in you feel welcome. The hosts are very informative and glad to pour samples free of charge. They have a Portfolio Society that is available to join so you can have deliveries of the new releases. There port wines are my favorite. Each one is very interesting and the host will tell you the process and how it becomes port. The winemaker makes his appearance and it is always exciting to talk with him and find out how his father started the business. Also they are glad to show you the vines that started the winery. Quite an experience. Oh yes want to mention again the tastings are
Free of charge.

The winery has grown over a number of years and has become well known for its Port Wines. They have an excellent variety of ports. The tasting room is modest and you are in the winery with the barrels. but very comfortable. The staff is very courteous and very knowledgeable on port wines. It is an enjoyable winery to visit if your are a fan of excellent port wine.

We continue to come back time after time. The staff is great, and ports are even better. If you have questions, they have the answers. Don't miss this winery if you are in the Madera area.

Known worldwide this is one of the best Port Wine producers anywhere. Nice people in the tasting room. Nothing fancy, just down to earth good place to visit and taste excellent ports. Been there several times during wine trail.
