This week, Grape Encounters takes you to the Gold Rush town of Murphys in Calaveras County, California.  Made famous for its JUMPING FROG contest by author Mark Twain, the area is now a wine and food mecca with irresistible treats everywhere you look.  Add to that awesome scenery and quaint towns and you’ve got a wine tasting and culinary adventure that simply can’t be beat!

We hit lots of the hot spots on this Grape Encounter, including historic Murphys Hotel, Aria Bakery, Bodega del Sur Winery, Newsome-Harlow Winery and Restaurant, the V Restaurant, Val Du Vin Winery and much more!  Come experience the friendly folks and great food and wine that have the frogs of Calaveras County jumping for joy!  Then, to finish things off, its another charming installment of THE GADGET GURU to turn you on to the latest and greatest wine-related products!
