It's Twisted

Twisted Oak is where I always take the first timers. Love the atmosphere as well as the wine and they have some great gifts inside as well.

Take the first drive to the right after the barn covered in rubber chickens....no joke, yellow, rubber chickens. Make sure to read all the signs on the way to the tasting room. Great wines, fun souvenirs, wonderful staff.

You need to become a Twisted few member! You'll get great wines and be able to get discounted tickets to all the concert events that take place all year at the winery, not to mention free access to the best part, THE PIRATE CAVE LOOT! They have a great tasting room at the winery plus another one just up north... More

I think Twisted Oak is the best tasting room and winery in the Murphys wine region. Visit their tasting room high on a hill with gorgeous views of the surrounding wine country and with a store chock full of hilarious wine-related and other gifts. For only $5, they gave me at least 15 tastes of their delicious wines. Excellent wine... More

This is a fun winery to visit, but if you do not take the gravel drive you miss 3/4 of the fun. The wines are wonderful as well so it is all a wonderful stop when you are in the area. You can visit the tasting room in Murphys but you miss the fun that this winery has with life.

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
