Nestled against the Sierra Foothills, in the heart of California’s scenic Gold Rush Country, Ironstone Vineyards will surprise and delight you with a winery that places as much emphasis on the natural beauty and history of our surroundings, as we do on the quality of our wines.
Tantalize your senses and explore our award-winning wines in our Tasting Room and Gourmet Delicatessen. Both rustic and elegant, its main features include a monumental 42-foot stone fireplace and historic oak bar. Take time to wind your way through The Heritage Museum and Jewellery Shoppe where fine jewellery and objects d’art are intertwined with a collection of gold rush treasures. Make sure not to miss our magnificent forty-four-pound Crystalline Gold Leaf Specimen - the largest in the world!
This state-of-the-art wine production facility, built in the style of a 19th century gold stamp mill, has antiques and gold mining artefacts on display both inside and throughout the grounds. Just below the Tasting Room, you can find the artfully restored Alhambra Theatre Pipe Organ. Ironstone Vineyards also houses a Culinary Exhibition Centre, an Outdoor Amphitheatre, Wine Aging Caverns, Meeting and Banquet Facilities, and fourteen acres of Spectacular Lakeside Gardens.
Ironstone is so much more than a winery. Family-owned and family-oriented, there is always something interesting happening including complimentary tours, cooking demonstrations, silent movies, holiday brunches, concerts, and gold panning for children of all ages.
Lodi has become the self-proclaimed “Zin” capital of the World producing over 40% of California-grown Zins. The Kautz Family grows these Zinfandel grapes in the Mokelumne River sub-appellation of the Lodi AVA. The area is blessed with an alluvial fan of sandy loam, well-drained soils and a classic Mediterranean climate.
This medium-bodied Zin has exceptional varietal character with lovely aromas of dark fruit and blackberry. Subtle pepper spice mingles with richly concentrated fruit flavours of blackberry, ripe plums and fresh red raspberries. Barrel aging created its smooth, silky finish and unprecedented depth.
