Nice to see Calaveras County getting some attention. Twisted Oak is great and I also really like Hatcher Winery and Brice Station Winery.

We are very much hoping to explore this part of CA wine country this coming April. I've had several wines from Twisted Oak, all of which are fabulous, and an excellent wine from Chatom Vineyards recently as well. I really hope we can make it work to get out there!

Calavares has many family-owned/boutique wineries. Most popular is Ironstone which has great grounds but wine is not the best quality. Famous for their jammy reds, the region produces some heavy but promising reds. Stevenot winery, located in Murphy's California is a great place to visit and their Old Vine Zin is one of my favorites.

hi Ben - thanks for the nice post! It seems like every winery up here has at least one wine worth checking out. As an added bonus, we will be featuring real fall colors for the next couple of months!

Yes, many reds up here have been heavy and jammy - but there are now many exceptions. For example, our Tempranillo runs about 13.7% ABV and is not at all jammy - or even jelly-ey! :)
