Day One - Arrive Friday Afternoon for a Full Weekend Away!
Get in the car and head up to Calaveras Wine Country for a weekend to remember. Just a 90 minute drive from the San Francisco Bay Area, this wine region is an easy get away. You may want to pack a cooler for taking home some delicious Calaveras wines and ensure they don’t get too hot along the way or even easier, have the wine sent to you. Arrive to Murphys by 2:00 to enjoy 3-4 tasting rooms before checking into your room. Stop by the Wine Information Center first to get your map and recommendations based on your interests. If you really want to spoil yourselves, checkout the Courtwood Inn or Dunbar House for the most romantic accommodations. Advance reservations are always recommended but you can sometimes find same day deals. Stop by Sierra Hills Market and the Natural Food Store in Murphys to pickup waters and snacks for your room before checkin. You will also find a variety of picnic items, a deli with hot foods, beautiful fresh flowers and chocolates.
