Madera County

Madera, the Spanish word for lumber, was this county’s first industry. But it was gold that put Madera on the map. Mining started here in 1849 and continued well into the 1900’s. Today, the county’s fertile farmlands are its most precious resource, producing almonds, figs, cotton, tomatoes, and yes, wine. Visit www.maderawinetrail.com →
