Family owend and operated by the Kautz Family, Ironstone is nestled against the Sierra Foothills, in the quaint town of Murphys, in Calaveras County which is the heart of California’s scenic Gold Rush Country. Our seven-story premier winery and entertainment complex is a modern replica of an 1859 Gold Stamp Mill complete with tasting room and gourmet delicatessen, an aging cavern, conference facilities, outdoor amphitheatre, and 14.5 acres of exquisitely landscaped gardens. The Heritage Museum and Jewelry Shoppe contains artifacts from the gold rush era and the world’s largest specimen of Crystalline Gold Leaf – a 44-pound treasure uncovered just a few miles from our door.
