FAMILY FRIENDLY WINE WEEKEND
Calaveras Wine Country Trip Planner
Ready to explore Calaveras Wine Country in the heart of the Sierra Foothills with your family? Get out and explore this historic, Gold-Rush Era Wine Region as you discover new outdoor adventures, delight in farm to table cuisine that compliment our hand-crafted wines. Find sweet treats at JoMa’s Ice Cream shop on Main Street Murphys as well as Nelson's Candies Murphys - serving the community for over 100 years.
Plan your time in this adventure wonderland with the helpful directory provided by our friends at Calaveras County Visitors Bureau HERE. You will find the perfect experience for every member of the family. For little ones, we suggest that you check out the Murphys Community Park playground or venture out to the sprawling grounds at Ironstone Vineyards to take in the beautiful flower gardens and picnic spots. Several of our tasting room members offer outdoor picnic spaces with the purchase of wine - a perfect plan for the parents too! We’ve taken the guesswork out of your plans and have provided this Trip Planner, ideal for families ready for a new adventure. Some of our tasting rooms on Main Street Murphys are small, historic buildings where visitor space is limited. We recommend that you research larger spaces if planning to bring small children along for wine tastings. Reach out with any questions or requests for how we can make your visit even more enjoyable!
