The California ranch-vibe of the Rosewood Sand Hill resort doesn’t lend itself to the typical bar scene. Instead, we recommend heading to the resort’s fine dining restaurant, Madera, and ordering a glass of wine. The award-winning wine list is heavily influenced by the area’s grapes and vineyards — making it the perfect way to experience those famous California reds.Madera’s wine list is meant to be paired with its American cuisine, which is highlighted by the harvest of local farms and sustainable meats and produce. Madera means "wood" in Spanish, and the concept of the restaurant is built around an open artisan wood-burning kitchen. Executive chef Peter Rudolph creates refined yet approachable American cuisine that celebrates the culinary traditions of the western United States. The restaurant’s elegant and cozy ambience is complete with picture-perfect views of the surrounding Bay Area.
