Our travel group enjoyed a tour of the beautiful grounds and buildings that comprise Ironstone Vineyards. The winery is located in Murphys, CA, in the Sierra foothills. The grounds are a showcase. In fact, the winery is a draw for many reasons other than wines. They have a deli and a fabulous dining room, a museum and gift shop, the largest gold leaf specimen in the world, a huge ballroom with a restored theater organ and they have outdoor concerts for thousands of people in their outdoor amphitheater. The vineyards are a venue for many weddings. There are lovely areas throughout the grounds, around the lake, to stage a wedding. However, there is one problem. The Canadian Geese like the grounds, too. The winery has come upon a solution. Coyotes. We were lucky to spot one on our tour.
Don't tell the geese that the coyotes are simply plywood cutouts!
