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

When I first drove up to Ironstone, I was disappointed, thinking that the winery was too big, and I was looking for handcrafted wines. However, Ironstone is a place of many faces. We grabbed a bottle of their Old Vine Zinfandel and a deli sandwich, then sat outside and enjoyed the afternoon. Then, on to the tasting. While Ironstone produces... More

Over 25 caretakers keep the grounds of this must see winery. Three stories, complete with museum, botanical gardens, waterfalls, water wheel, museum, deli, tasting room, Pipe Organ Room, caves, lake, and too much more to list. We toured on our own, but hope to return for an event and guided tour some day. There as so many surrounding attractions to... More
