The Ironstone Vineyards offered free parking with a shuttle to Murphy's for the annual Irish Days Fair on March 21 this year. We had never been here before and were totally amazed at the place! A beautiful restaurant, tasting room, museum/jewelry store, display of a real 41 pound gold nugget - REALLY! The grounds are absolutely beautiful and remind me... More

Worth the drive! The grounds were beautiful. The tour informative. The wine so great quality. Be sure to visit their museum /jewelry store. They have a great collection from California's gold rush history.

Ironstone sure has all the bases covered re having something for everyone. This is the only winery I think that is open daily on a regular basis all year ( many of the Murphys area wineries are open for tastings only on the weekends, or for limited hours, or close for no apparent rhyme or reason outside of the peak...

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).
