Idle Hour Winery, Westbrook Wine Farm &
Fasi Estate Winery form an alliance.

It looks like we have finally reached "critical mass" with three wineries in our Sierra foothills of eastern Madera County.


Westbrook Wine Farm was the lone voice of viticulture up here from 1995 until about 2006 when a few other stout souls started taking an interest. Idle Hour Winery opened in Oakhurst in September 2008 and Fasi Estate Winery opens its doors this month.


The many top awards given to wines crafted along the Yosemite Sierra Wine Road speaks to a new era of value added agriculture in Madera County.


Idle Hour Winery, Westbrook Wine Farm and Fasi Estate Winery have formed an alliance that we call the Yosemite Sierra Wine Road in an

ongoing effort to showcase our artisanal wines and divergent philosophies. We are having so much fun !


Novice and seasoned tasters whom may also wish to avail themselves of the dramatic natural and historic attractions of our mountain areas will be able to discover and enjoy authentic craft wines and personally meet their winemakers.


Take the highways or the back road byways to combine exciting wine discovery with your visits to Bass Lake, Yosemite, The Sierra Vista Scenic Byway, Sugar Pine Railroad, Erna's Elderberry House and the Coarsegold Historic Museum for your ultimate day trip.
