At Ironstone Vineyards, we are known for our hospitality. Inside the Tasting Room, our friendly staff is always happy to explain the origins and characteristics of each grape variety as you sample from our award-winning wines.

Our hospitality doesn't end at the there... Be sure to visit our Heritage Museum & Jewelry Shoppe, where you can pick up a piece of gold country history. While in the Heritage Museum, get your photo with our 44-pound cystalline gold piece, one of the largest gold pieces in the world!

Lovers of the great outdoors can enjoy the Ironstone Amphitheatre (home of our Summer Concert Series) wine caverns, fourteen acres of spectacular lakeside gardens, and our gold panning stream reminiscent of the California Gold Rush era.

Please Note: Our Gourmet Delicatessen is closed until Spring 2017. Please inquire in the Tasting Room about our charcuterie offerings.

This is our favourite winery in Murphys itself. Huge grounds are beautiful and ready for a very classy wedding. Concerts take place in the outdoor arena. Excellent wines can be tasted in their very large tasting room. Take a tour to view their beautiful organ.

Plus, you shouldn't miss the big chunk of gold in the viewing room. The bar was packed, so service was a little slow because the guy on our end of the bar just couldn't keep up. Eventually an older lady helped us and served all of our tastings. Their wine is very good. I bought three bottles, and with all... More

This winery has 5 locations to have a fantastic wedding and reception. The wineries grounds are spectacular and they are beautifully landscaped. They also have an Entertainment venue which has 6-7 big name acts during the summer months. If you are planning a visit to the Calaveras Wine Country, Murphys or a Wedding you must check them out.

We came here for a weekend concert. The venue was just absolutely excellent. Great sound and ample food and drink vendors. Parking is real easy both in and out but be prepared for slow leaving traffic back thru Murphys due to the 2-mile narrow road leaving the complex. The wines were just okay, I would not recommend the Chardonnay as... More
