Our History

In 1987 Clarence and Becky Jenkins started Madrone Vineyard Management. Clarence Jenkins a 3rd generation grape grower, has worked the vineyards since he was 12 years old. He learned the love of grape growing from his father, Clarence Jenkins Sr. and Grandfathers; Henry Jenkins and Charles Joseph Henry Rust. All of which had farmed various arrangements of crops in Napa Valley, California. Becky Jenkins a retired RN, manages the budgeting, licenses, and permit, in a constant effort to keep up and be informed on all the changing laws and regulations.

As Madrone Vineyard Management began to grow in 2011 Clarence and Becky Jenkins realized they needed more dynamic people to help oversee the daily operations, and so Sara Metzger and Isaac Jenkins joined the family business.

Sara Metzger, Becky and Clarence’s Daughter, has helped her mother in the office throughout the years and is now using her Visual Communications Degree to assist in the marketing and business development of the company and launching the Jenkins’ first vintage.

Since Isaac’s arrival he has brought a unique, informed perspective gained from attending Fresno State's Wine Making and Viticulture Program, to the team. Isaac Jenkins has worked along side his father almost all of his life and couldn't be happier doing what he loves.
