Fodor's Expert Review Ironstone Vineyards
The spectacular, impeccably maintained gardens at 1,150-acre Ironstone—not to mention the 44-pound specimen of crystalline gold on display—make a visit here enjoyable even if you don't drink wine. The winery, known for Lodi and Sierra Foothills Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and old-vine Zinfandel, hosts concerts and other events. Its deli has picnic items. The history-oriented estate tour, conducted on Friday and Saturday, takes in the gardens and wine caverns.
