At Ironstone, we're known for our hospitality. Inside the Tasting Room and Delicatessen, our friendly staff is always happy to explain the origins and characteristics of each grape variety when you visit us for a sampling of our award-winning wines.
Built in 1907 by the New Brunswick Bowling Ball Company in New York, the Tasting Room bar sailed around Cape Horn to its original location at the A.J. Bumps Saloon in Freeport. At the turn-of-the-century, Freeport was a small port town where incoming ships could avoid the astronomical levies being imposed in the larger, nearby port of Sacramento. The bar’s rich oak was seasoned with many a tale of woe and happiness until the landmark location closed and the famous wooden bar was brought to Ironstone in 1992.
Gourmet sandwiches, hot daily specials, salads, and home-made desserts await you in our Delicatessen. Dine alongside the 42-foot tall fireplace or on one of the patios that overlook our famous gardens.Throughout the Tasting Room and Delicatessen you will find an assortment of our wines along with epicurean delights and food-related items, as well as clothing and great gift ideas for any occasion. Be sure to try our Estate Grown Reserve wines and some of the other delectible treats that are only available for purchase in the Tasting Room.
There is a tasting fee of $5.00 for 6 tastes. For our Wine Club Members this fee is waived. Winery tasting fees are waived for those guests who purchase wine.
Complimentary Winery Tours start in the Tasting Room at 1:30 pm (Wednesday through Sunday).
