We just happened to be at Ironstone when they were offering a free tour. I quickly finished my tasting to be on this tour. Best decision all day! If you have the opportunity (it was Sat @1:30) go on this tour. They discuss the size of the property, gave a tour of the museum which includes the infamous 44 lb.... More

The wine tasting room was spacious and inviting with many things to purchase in addition to wine, cheese and sandwiches. The staff was great and incredibly friendly. We ended up purchasing two bottles of wine. The shops are very neat to see and walk around--the 55 pound gold nugget on display is an instant conversation starter. The day got even... More

We've been to a few events here and think that it is a beautiful place. The atmosphere is amazing. The caves and waterfalls are a fun and unique backdrop to listen to music and enjoy some good wine.

During my very first visit to Ironstone Vineyards in September 2014, it made a very good impression. They hosted their annual antique car show, which was beyond excellent and well worth my time. The grounds are vast, in a beautiful natural setting. I am certainly looking forward to my next visit.

This must see event is held the last weekend of September every year and benefits FFA & 4H. Beautiful cars, beautiful grounds! Over 200 cars this year in a multitude of classes and don't forget to visit the vintage trailer camping area!

Attended the special event - Concorde de Eligance at the winery. It was amazing! The event was very organized and provided spectators with a spectacular collection of autos. The tasting room is beautiful and has a wonderful gift store. The restaurant was over-extended on event day, but on a normal weekend, probably would be fine. Service was, however very polite... More

In Sept. we went to a dinner featuring music from different era's. The music was great. Really good voices from the cast but not much flow in the program. The food was very disappointing. The green salad was completey wilted and tasteless, the roll was not fresh and served cold and then they put a store bought bad tasting cookie... More

The Grounds are BEAUTIFUL with many mining antiques! Museum is large and spacious! Entry and roaming is free! Parking is nice with much shade! NO $5 'cover charge' for tasting all the wine you wish! Elevator for disabled! Wine GOOD and priced fairly! 'Gouging' at a minimum!

Went to Ironstone Ampitheater Aug 15 to see the Jeff Beck/ZZ Top concert. This was a great venue, plenty of parking, clean, fine views, laid out nicely. The show put on by Jeff Beck and ZZ Top was worth every penny. One drawback for Ironstone though,..all of the parking lot area is dirt!? What a mess. How about investing in... More
