Frog’s Tooth Vineyards
Once upon a time, not so long ago, in a valley known more for cattle ranching than vineyards our story begins.
It was the Winter of 1999 when Frog’s Tooth Vineyards began its life as a tadpole with the purchase of 67 acres of land in the Salt Springs Valley of Calaveras County.
It slowly grew through infancy until the Spring of 2003 when it began its transition to adolescence with the planting of approximately 10 acres of premium wine grapes.
Frog’s Tooth Vineyards entered young froghood in 2005 when we crushed fruit for what would become our first vintage wine.
Our transition continued with the opening of our Tasting Room in Murphys, California in the Fall of 2007 followed by the completion of our winery building at the end of 2008. — and the frog’s tale continues…now, in 2010 we are making additional “leaps” by expanding our downtown Murphys tasting room and equipping our winery building with all the tools necessary to implement our first crush at our own site in the fall of this year.
