  • Ironstone Winery Concerts 2014

    Ironstone Winery Concerts 2014


    Ironstone Winery in Murphys Ca has announced two concerts for the summer of 2Happy Ironstone Winery Concert Goers014.  This is one of the nicest places in the area to see a concert.   The amphitheater is located on the beautiful grounds of the Ironstone Winery in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

    I have been to several concerts there over the last few years and always have enjoyed myself.  Murphys is a great place to come up and make it a whole day of fun. 

    There are dozens of wineries, such as Twisted Oak, in the area that offer wine tastings of some very good wines.  If you want to try something other than wine head over to Marisolio Tasting Bar to try olive oils and balsamic vinegars .  There is also the famous Murphys Hotel Saloon where you can hang out before or after the show and enjoy an adult beverage. 

    There are several great plIronstone Winery Ampitheaterace to eat in Murphys. If you are looking for a great place for your pre concert dinner, Angelos Steakhouse Italiano is one of my favorites. Another local favorite is Mineral Restaraunt. There are several other restraunts in downtown Murphys that should hit the spot. You can also get a quick meal or snack at the venue itself as there are always plenty of food vendors.

    If you want to make it a weekend trip there are lots of places to stay in and around Murphys. Just a word of warning though you better make your reservations soon because they tend to fill up early for concert weekends.


    The concerts announced so far are:

    Lady Antebellum - June 13th, 2014

    ZZ Top & Jeff Beck - August 15th, 2014

    Tickets go on sale April 11th and are available through Ticketmaster. Check back often for updates and added shows.
