The Wineries of Murphys, Cailfornia

There are 25 tasting rooms in and around Murphys. Brice Stationer Winery (pictured to the left) is located up Hiway 4 going towards Arnold. Frog's Tooth tasting room is located among the other 16 tasting rooms in downtown Murphys. Ironstone is by far the biggest and most impressive of the wineries. It's located about a mile outside of Murphys, it has a museum in which the Kautz specimen is housed. It's the largest specimen of crystalline gold in the world, weighing in at 44 pounds (pictured above). Ironstone has a beautiful tastingroom with a 1800's look and feel. It also has an amphiteatre which hosts such artists at The Moody Blues, Alan Jackson, and Jason Mras. Check out all their events at
