Ironstone Vineyards Review

Tours here take in spectacular gardens and underground tunnels cooled by a waterfall, and include the automated performance of a restored silent-movie-era pipe organ. On display near the tasting room is a 44-pound specimen of crystalline gold. The winery, known for Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc, hosts concerts and other events. Its deli has picnic items. Ironstone is worth a visit even if you don't drink wine.

    The BEST winery to visit in the entire Foothills region!

    This winery has something for everyone, not just wine drinkers! The gold specimen (at 44 lbs) is not to be missed! Gold panning for the kids (modest cost), silent movie organ demonstrations (and movies as scheduled), tours, weddings, concerts, annual auto show, annual quilt show, etc., etc., etc. You do "have to see it to believe it!" The flowers are fantastic -- especially in the spring when the daffodils are out. Free wine tasting, too. (Reserve wine tasting may have a small charge.) Worth a trip!
