I attend the Concours de Elegance here every September. This is how we first started going to Murphys. The grounds at the winery are amazing. The Kautz Family has done it right! The wines are pretty good as well!

We did wine tastings at many of the tasting rooms in Murphys, CA, which we thoroughly enjoyed. But as far as touring a winery, this is the one to do. Tours are at 1:30 each day - at least they were in February. We learned a little about the family, strolled the beautiful arbor, and viewed historic gold mining equipment.... More

The beauty of the grounds along with the food. I love to be able to take the prepared food down by the water falls and have a picnic. Wonderful.

Beautiful winery, gorgeous setting and concert venue. However wines served there are just OK. Sparkling wine was too sweet, and most reds were not very good. Only exception was the old-vines Zinfandel, which was good (but not great).

We ate a big breakfast then took a scenic hike/walk up to Ironstone. We were able to go in and see the beautiful vineyards, the open air venue where concerts are held and they have a museum and gift shop with fascinating historical objects and information.

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.
