Wine is one of the reasons that visiting the California Foothills is rewarding. California 's Historic Wine Country is becoming one of the most sought after places for wine connoisseurs to taste the local vintage. Wine tasting should be a leisurely affair and it is in Calaveras County. People are friendly and the winemakers are willing to share their stories of the wines they offer. From the small intimate wineries, to the grand seven story facility of Ironstone Vineyard, we know you will have an exceptional day of tasting the Calaveras County, California wines. The nearby towns of Murphys, Mokelumne Hill, Vallecito and Valley Springs are all home to wineries. Many of the local wines are served at the Copper Grille at Saddle Creek. The Grape Stomp is a popular event for visitors and locals alike. We recommend that you visit the Calaveras Wine Grape Alliance's website to find out more about the Calaveras County wines. The site is full of information and maps that will entice you to plan a wine tasting adventure. We have provided a link directly to them at www.calaveraswines.org and hope you will explore our fine wineries.
