All Day The 22nd Annual Presidents’ Day Wine Weekend is February 17th & 18th
Murphys , CA...The 22nd annual Presidents’ Day Wine Weekend sponsored by the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance (CWA) will take place Saturday February 17th and Sunday February 18th. Presidents’ Wine Weekend is an opportunity for wine lovers to taste their way thru Calaveras County by purchasing a $25 commemorative glass and visiting over 28 participating wineries and tasting rooms while enjoying free limited-tasting flights of numerous award winning wines and exciting varietals offered by the best of Calaveras County’s wine community.


Full tastings will be available in each tasting room for an additional fee with many participating wineries and tasting rooms offering live music, light bites and food samples as well as special offers on wine purchases. Visitors to Calaveras County’s wine region will find plenty of warm welcomes and hospitable spirit within our tasting rooms as they welcome participants to this highly anticipated two-day event.



Presidents Wine Weekend is a great time to sample the variety of award winning wines, taste those robust Spanish and Italian regional varietals the foothills have become known for like Barbera, Tempranillo as well as Mourvedre and Grenache from France and some of the best Zinfandels and Cabernets produced in Gold Country. Even better, it gives you a chance to meet our winemakers, experience our welcoming hospitality, discover the history that surrounds the region and shop the myriad of specialty boutiques in the charming town of Murphys.



Purchase your glass anytime during this two-day event at a participating winery and begin your exploration. Glasses can be purchased for $25 per day or $40 for a two-day pass. You simply won't be able to taste at all the wineries in one day, so book your reservations now at one of our charming hospitality partners and plan on taking your time to experience all that Calaveras has to offer!



Glasses will be sold in Downtown Murphys on Main Street in front of Newsome Harlow Winery and in front of Black Sheep Winery as well as specific winery locations around Calaveras.



For visitors traveling up from the valley, stop off at Copperopolis Town Square and purchase you glass at The Tipsy Frog Wine Bar or Downtown Angels Camp at Metate Vineyards tasting room on Main Street. Glasses will also be available to purchase throughout the weekend at Coppermine Winery and Chatom Winery on Hwy 4, Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys, Brice Station Winery east of Murphys, Val du Vino Winery on the corner of Main Street and French Gulch Road and Hatcher Tasting Room or Milliaire Winery downtown Murphys.

12:00 PM - 04:00 PM Murphys Old Timers Museum Will Display "Cattle in the Sierras " Through April
Murphys, CA...Funded by a California Stories grant from California Humanities, the Murphys Old Timers Museum, has produced an exhibit on the long-established practice of transhumance in the California Foothills and Sierra Nevada. Since gold was discovered in California in the winter of 1848, cattle have roamed the foothills in winter and spring, summered in the rich grasslands of the Sierra Nevada, and returned to their lowland homes in the fall. This annual pattern (transhumance), with established ranches and farms in the lower elevations and summer camps and pasturages in the high mountain meadows, is rapidly disappearing. Threatened with the diminishing price of beef to producers, difficulties in transporting livestock to their summer ranges, and environmental regulations, this 160-year old California tradition may disappear in the near future. Proponents of grazing argue that this will result in loss of mountain meadows and ponds as well as lowland ranches with their grass ranges to residential sprawl. Some environmental and hiking groups contend that livestock grazing in the mountains has led to degradation of streams and native ecosystems. The exhibit, and a video, recount the stories of historic cattle ranching in the California foothills and its battle to stay alive in the face of current environmental and economic challenges, also addressing the effects of its continued operation on mountain ecosystems. Utilizing historical and current photographs and the installation of a 1911 high country cow camp, this exhibit argues that by working together to solve grazing issues, ranchers, the Forest Service, scientists, environmental groups, and the public can resolve their differences, resulting in a win-win for all. A 15-minute video, presenting both sides of the issue and a hope for reconciliation, is forthcoming.




The exhibit will be on display at the Murphys Old Timers Museum, 470 Main Street, Murphys Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays 12 pm to 4 pm through April 29, 2018. Call for more info 728-1160.
