Ironstone Vineyards

Ironstone Vineyards is so much more than a winery. Family owned and family-oriented, there is always something interesting happening including complimentary tours of beautifully groomed grounds, silent movie nights, holiday brunches, barrel tastings, Concours d'Elegance car show, and more. Headlining acts play every year at the Ironstone Amphitheatre Summer Concert Series. Additionally, Ironstone is an outstanding destination wedding setting.

Ironstone Vineyards Heritage Museum & Jewelry Shop

The heritage museum contains engaging exhibits and artifacts from the earliest inhabitants of Murphys, the Miwok people, Native Americans who settled this area millennia ago. The California Gold Rush is also represented with 19th century gold mining equipment and records. In addition, it houses a fine jewelry shop specializing in pieces made with gold bearing quartz. Here you can also see the magnificent 44 lb crystalline gold leaf specimen that was discovered on Christmas Day in 1992 at Carson Hill, just 15 miles from Ironstone. Known as the “Gold Pocket” this spectacular hunk of gold is also very beautiful in its crystalline form, one of the rarest forms in which gold is ever found.

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
