The town of Murphys goes all out on President’s Weekend. This is one of our biggest tourist attractions of the year, with local wine tasting rooms opening their doors to the public in celebration of the great wines of our region. The event is sponsored by the Calaveras Wine Grape Association February 15th and 16th, 2014. This is the 18th Annual President’s Wine Weekend in Murphys, with 22 CWA wineries participating from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM both days.
This is a great opportunity to sample the fine wines of Calaveras, celebrate with friends old and new, and take advantage of special discounts. With the purchase of a $20 commemorative wine glass, you are entitled to a free ‘limited-tasting’ flight at all participating member wineries, Saturday through Sunday. Full tastings will be available in each tasting room for an additional fee. Wine glasses will be available on Main Street in Murphys, on Saturday only, in front of the Native Sons Hall. Or get a glass all weekend long at locations in Calaveras County: The Calaveras Visitor’s Bureau in Angels Camp, Chatom Vineyards on Highway 4 in Douglas Flat , Frog’s Tooth Vineyards in Murphys, Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys, and Val du Vino Winery on the corner of Main Street and French Gulch Road. Wine Glass sales are cash only, no credit cards will be accepted. No reservations are required. For more information, call 209-728-9467209-728-9467 or visit calaveraswines.org.
