Out & About at Irish Day 2019 in Murphys

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/17/2019 11:02 PM
Murphys, CA...We have a few favorite days covering our area and Irish Day is always one of those. We look at it as not only an entertainment event but also a barometer on how our local tourism economy is doing and how it might do for this year. One of the things that all of us need to be thankful for is that we live in an area that people want to visit. Tourism generates over a billion dollars a year for our coverage area. Many of our local businesses would not exist without the revenue our guests and second home owners bring. Some business owners have told us that over 50% of their revenue is from visitors.

Murphys, CA...Black Sheep Winery arrived in Murphys with the 1984 harvest. From that first harvest we produced our 1984 Amador Zinfandel. The wine was styled in a big, bold way like nobody else could do. That's what makes us Black Sheep; we're different from the rest of the flock. We feature small batches of limited release wines handcrafted from high quality grapes grown in Calaveras and Amador Counties. We produce about 2,500 cases of wine per year, specializing in Zinfandels and Rhone varietals.
