Thomas Family Winery, Madison

A feeling of community in downtown Madison

Relax in the cheerful pub-style tasting room in this 1850s stable and carriage house as you try handcrafted wines and old-world ciders. The Thomas family tradition of winemaking dates back to the 1930s when Gale Thomas made hard cider. The current owners, representing the third generation of the family, rehabilitated the historic building in downtown Madison to become both a winery and gathering place. They specialize in traditional European-style wines and the renaissance of Gale’s Hard Cider. Take a cellar tour and enjoy old-fashioned board games. Live music makes it even more fun on select Saturday nights.
