Ironstone's Water Wheel is up and running!

After a brief hiatus, Ironstone Vineyard's historic water wheel is up and running again.  This beautiful water wheel was lovingly restored as part of Ironstone's outdoor mining museum.
Flumes carrying water gently flow from the top and turn the wheel.  with a series of pulleys, the wheel operates the stamp mill you see in the photo, crushing ore brought by ore cart from the mine shafts.

Don't miss seeing this historic example of a true mining operation here at Ironstone. Open daily from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

Holiday Traditions with the Kruchta Family

Last week we were visited by the Kruchta Family of Hollister, CA.  

The family have been coming to Ironstone Vineyards annually during Thanksgiving since the oldest son was a baby.  The boys, Alden and Anton asked to help decorate one of our many trees here in the tasting room.  

Even dad and their grandmother helped. Mom stayed back taking care of the newest boy in the family who will be helping to decorate in a couple of years. 

Thank you to the Krichta Family from everyone

in the tasting room for making our holiday more special.
