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.
The Kautz Family grows these Petite Sirah grapes in the Mokelumne River sub-appellation of the Lodi AVA. It’s a classic Mediterranean climate with an alluvial fan of sandy loam, well-drained soils ideal for growing world-class wine grapes.
Succulent and rich, its rich, deep, dark purple inky colour leads way to bold aromas of warm berry pie and loads of blueberry mixed with vanilla and a light pepper spice. Its full flavour of lush berries mixed with dark chocolate, warm cedar and vanilla gives way to a delightfully smooth finish with moderate tannins.
