We enjoyed attending several music concerts here. Great people, pretty decent venue (although you're in the dirt) - - - parking very easy & organized. Lots of nice people around to help out - some grass would be nice, but hey, takes too much water to keep it green.

First of all take the dirt road up to the winery instead of the paved road it adds a little more twisted to your visit. Of course everybodys taste in wine is different so for me I liked some of their whites and thought the reds were too dry for me. The view from the winery is fantastic looking east... More

This was one of the several wineries I visited in the area and provided a good overall experience. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was upbeat and fun. Overall, I thought the quality of the wines was mixed. Some were above average, while others were not all that good. Everyone I spoke to at this winery was in a... More

The fun aspect sets this place apart. But don't be fooled - the wine is spectacular. Mostly warm climate varietals - all good. Join the wine club and get a rubber chicken!

We enjoyed the wines at all of the area wineries we visited, but I think Twisted Oak was probably our favorite!!! All of the wines we sampled were unique, different, delicious and well priced. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, well informed with no pressure to purchase a wine. I love their sense of humor - take the gravel driveway to... More

When given a choice of which road to take always take the twisted road! What fun we had on the gravel twisted road. Many signs along the way will keep you laughing. Watch out for the rubber chickens! I am not going to give the surprises away, but you will not be disappointed with this ride. The next enjoyment will... More

Don't be thrown by the title! You will understand. As you are driving up the hill towards to winery, you read the most hilarious signs. Next time I go I want to take pictures of them. :). You get to the top and enjoy wine tasting and laughter as you take in and read the signs and gifts available. Unfortunately... More

They hang chickens here and there, very friendly/fun people. Not sure if it's all family operated but they all seem like family. Nice place, good wine.

Murphys and around is a great place to go wine tasting, and Twisted is in a class nearly by itself. You have two choices on how you arrive to Twisted, and Twisted Road is a must. It is lined with hilarious signs and really gets you in a good mood about the visit (as if the wine wouldn't do that... More
