Murphys Suites

Name: Beverly Babcock
Phone: 775-742-1777

We’re going to Murphys in Calaveras County, California, August 21-23, for our annual Winery Tour.  This year, especially, I’m sure you would  like to be outside and get away for a nice long weekend of wine tasting and walking. If you’ve been to Murphys before with our club, this tour will be different due to the pandemic, but I guarantee it will be fun.

We have 20 rooms reserved for the club at Murphys Suites. You need to book now, before tour registration, as they will go fast. Rooms are checkin Friday, the 21st of August and checkout Sunday, the 23rd of August.  Please call #209-728-2121 to reserve your room. It is under Sierra Nevada Porsche Club – $179.00 per night (total for two nights with taxes is $400.96, double-occupancy).  There is a 24 hour cancellation on the room but once the dinner and tasting events are prepaid, there are no cancellations on those items.

Friday: The Reno/Sparks and points North folks will meet at the Wedge Parkway McDonald’s at 9:30 am and leave at 10 am to meet up with the Minden/Gardnerville and points South contingent in Genoa, about 10:45 am.  We’ll leave Genoa at 11 am and stop at the Twisted Oak Winery in Vallecito, CA for food and wine, before proceeding on to our hotel, Murphys Suites. Dinner is on your own Friday night.

Saturday: We meet at 9 am for breakfast at Hillbillies. At 11 am we will drive to Chatom Vineyards. Upon returning to our hotel we’ll leave at 1 pm and walk to Ironstone Vineyards for lunch.  After lunch you are free to tour the downtown area with its tasting rooms or just relax at the hotel.  Saturday evening we will meet at the Old Murphys Hotel for cocktails at 6 pm and a plated dinner at 7 pm.  There you will have a choice of House or Ceasar salad and a choice of entree (Surf &Turf, Stuffed Chicken, Roasted Duck, Pork Roulade, or Vegetarian Raviolis). All dinners include rolls & butter and a choice of seasonal house desserts. Salad and entree selections must be made in advance. After you register, you need to contact Beverly Babcock (at 775-742-1777 or with your salad and entree selections, by close of registration – August 18.

Sunday: After saying our farewells in the morning, we’ll depart separately for our homes.
