Ironstone is so much more than a winery. Family owned and family-oriented, there is always something interesting happening including complimentary tours of their beautifully groomed grounds, silent movie nights, holiday brunches, gold panning on weekends and much more. Free tours of the winery grounds and wine cave offered.
This is a large, beautiful facility that hosts many fun events throughout the year, including their legendary summer concert series, the July 4th Independence Day Celebrations and fireworks, an outstanding Concours d’Elegance, Silent Movie Nights featuring their classic Alhambra organ, the Spring Obsession Art Show, and many more. It’s also a very popular location for weddings with onsite catering – and 2 spots on the property to hold a ceremony. Most brides and grooms find something to appeal to their personal style in this outstanding place.
In addition to being an outstanding event and wedding space, museum and gourmet deli, Ironstone Vineyards is a seriously good winemaker. Check out their multiple awards in our handy list of Calaveras County Wineries AWARDS and ACCOLADES
Just spending an afternoon exploring the beautifully manicured grounds, enjoying a gourmet deli meal, and tasting award-winning wines can be topped off by visiting the Heritage Museum and Jewelry shop. There you can peruse Gold Rush era exhibits and the largest crystalline gold nugget pulled out of the Mother Lode at a whopping 44lbs. Beautiful, carefully selected jewelry and art are also available for purchase.
