Do you suppose the original settlers of the town of Felix, CA, ever would have guessed that the biggest crop outside of hay for cattle would be grapes? We doubt that very much!!
Frog’s Tooth Vineyards and Winery, now located officially in the Copperopolis zip code began to take shape in the summer of 1999. The initial property purchase totaled 67 acres, at 2797 Hunt Road, Copperopolis.
Subsequently the land was prepped and planted with four different Rhone Region varietals. These included Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, on the white grape side then Petite Sirah and Grenache on the red side, followed in 2016 by the addition of Syrah grafts.
These varietals allow Will Houle, our young award winning winemaker, the ability to watch carefully over the vineyard practices, while in the end providing numerous evolutions for blending. We search for grapes from amongst the best of our Sierra Foothills AVA region, now extending our reach into the Central Valley and Russian River Regions, to add Chardonnay and Pinot Noir...bottling in April 2017.
In 2005 with a winery bond we began to edge toward building our own winery presence with equipment to become vertically integrated. The bountiful harvest of this year enabled us to open our tasting room in downtown Murphys in 2007.
Located in an isolated spot just off Main Street proper, at 380 Main Street, Ste 5, gives us the ability to promote our products and for our guests to enjoy concentrated attention from the owners, winemaker and veteran staff. An outside deck is a huge draw as customers can sit, relax and enjoy a tasting in this isolated atmosphere, separate from the hustle of the downtown strip.
We take pride in having developed a great following of club members, some nearing their 10th anniversary. Our club uniquely favors and rewards the members with multiple yearly events, unheard of discounts and flexible wine preferences. Our most unique Case Club…called the Bull Frog Pond, features a concierge style service with selected wines presented at each club shipment point.
Events you ask??? How about multiple vineyard parties with phenomenal musical talent, catered food delights, barrel sampling, camping, bonfires…just a great wine time. We also are active with Winemaker dinners locally and around the N. CA region. See our club sign up and events tabs above.
A keen set of partners with shared goals drives our business and we hope that you will find time to visit us. We welcome your comments and suggestions as we move forward!!
