Estate Selection Tasting Profile: A Beautiful Juxtaposition
The purpose behind the Crown Point Estate Selection is to share a reflection of our vineyard in your glass. A blend of all five Bordeaux varieties planted on our estate property, the wine captures the nuances from our best parcels.
A Great Site, an Experienced Vineyard Team, and Good Pruning Shears
Juve Buenrostro, the Vineyard Manager at Crown Point, knows the estate intimately. He has over 20 years of experience in the vineyard and throughout the Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara. He lives on-site with his family and walks the vineyard daily—Juve’s uncompromising attention to detail and dedication to the property is exhibited in every block.
