The Madera Vintners Association (MVA) is encouraging responsible transportation companies to visit the multiple wineries on the Madera Wine Trail. As transportation companies are aware, the wineries are held to laws and high standards within the State of California and the County of Madera to maintain an orderly and safe environment where alcoholic beverages are being served. The MVA takes seriously the problem of highly intoxicated and disruptive customers being brought to them by transportation companies. Therefore, the wineries desire to develop a closer working relationship with those transportation companies who on a best effort basis will attempt to not bring to their wineries overly intoxicated or disruptive customers and who agree to deal with problems related to this topic when it is brought to their attention.
