DogTrekker’s Calaveras County Wine Trail sports 24 listings and growing, with many wineries and tasting rooms situated in or near the hip and happening town of Murphys on Highway 4. Stroll down Main Street, and you’ll be amazed to find more than 20 opportunities to wine-taste with your pup by your side!
We’re partial to Twisted Oak’s decidedly twisted sense of humor (watch out for the rubber chickens) and Zucca Mountain Vineyard’s big reds, cozy cellar tasting room and accommodating garden patio. It’s a short drive to Ironstone Vineyards, a destination winery and concert venue with a museum housing the world’s largest gold-leaf specimen (44 pounds) and lots of other things to see. Dogs are allowed in the picnic area and on the patio, but you’ll have to swap off to peruse what’s inside.
