The future of wine & Cider
Our vine to wine and apple to cider ingredients make each of our natural wines a class of their own.
Mad Marvlus is a low-intervention wine and cider brand producing unique high-quality beverages with organic (and sometimes foraged) fruit and botanicals as naturally as possible in Northern California.
We are focused on creating with climate change-friendly ingredients, such as underrepresented fruit like hybrid grapes, native grapes, tannic apples, pears, and botanicals like lemon verbena.
Mad Marvlus focuses on also elevating cider to the respectable level as grape wine and redefining a new level of dry fine vinous cider.
Marreya Bailey, the owner and producer of Mad Marvlus, also enjoys applying pan-cultural ancestral fermentation practices that continue respecting the balance amongst art, science, nature, and people.
Producing wine and cider as naturally as possible with patience and minimal to zero sulfur added. This includes native yeast fermentation and organically-grown fruit with no synthetic or artificial additives.
Believe it or not, most wines are not made with sustainably farmed fruit. We forage, purchase and work with rare and underrepresented fruits that are sustainably grown but climate friendly and drought tolerant.
Hi, I’m Marreya (Mar-re-yuh)!
I am the founder, owner, and producer of Mad Marvlus.
In 2020, I found myself stifled working in corporate America for a few years. I wanted to express myself through my favorite passions: art, science, nature, and wine. In 2021, I moved from the Midwest to California to immerse myself in winemaking by working in various operational positions for several wineries.
I noticed few women of color and even fewer women who looked like me in the natural wine and cider business, so I wanted to help disrupt the industry by making it more vibrant!
Winemaking is an art, and as an artist, I use my creativity to produce some “Marvlus” tasting wines and cider by tapping into my inner “Mad” scientist side using a variety of organic fruit and botanicals not commonly used to create unique flavors.
Hence the name of my company, Mad Marvlus. So, raise your glass and toast to Mad Marvlus!
The wines and cider you will fall madly in love with!
