My wife and I are not big wine-drinkers. Usually, what tasting-rooms serve is about the right quantity for us, and we'll occasionally buy a bottle or two after a tasting, if they impress us. Yesterday on a trip through Calaveras County, we stopped at a...More

Good wines, lots of fun labels to give as gifts. My favorite is the duct tape wine "fixes everything". A REAL fire outside. Great place to sit and have a glass of wine.

The staff here is extra friendly. They are very helpful and not only offer great wines but can give you a little advice on things to do around town. I was told they even offer wine "kegs" for parties, etc.

Each region has its specialties and quirks, so it's hard to say which is the best winery, period. Murphy's has something like a couple of dozen tasting rooms in the downtown area, with a few tasting rooms located nearby. It's nice to be able to...More
