The genesis of Crown Point unveiled a site with undeniable attributes prompting consistent recognition. A confluence where rocky slopes fade into a loamy mesa providing distinctive personalities for Cabernet Sauvignon.

Positioned twelve miles north from the Pacific Ocean tucked in between two mountain ranges, the mild Mediterranean climate distinguishes our wines. This unique topography delivers mineral-rich, nutrient-poor, stress-inducing soils.

An intimate understanding of site is at the core of our viticulture ethos. As stewards of the land, we take pride in understanding the prowess and challenges of our vineyard.

Owner and visionary, Roger Bower discovered Crown Point Vineyard in 2012 in pursuit of the next frontier in Santa Barbara Wine Country, a boundary that connects Winemaker, Simon Faury with renown Consultants, Michel Rolland and Philippe Melka.

ESTATE Vineyard

Eleven miles north of the Pacific Ocean, Crown Point Vineyards lies between the Santa Ynez coastal range and the flanking San Rafael mountains. The Mediterranean climate combined with the stress-inducing rocky soil creates the ideal balance to produce 45 acres of distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Sauvignon Blanc. 

We invite to explore our vineyard through the interactive map below. 


At the epicenter of the Crown Point estate lies a retrofitted horse barn turned state-of-the-art winery. Surrounded by 45 planted acres, the winery’s connection to the site defines an estate property. The facility’s interior features French oak barrels with upright wooden oak fermenters. Surrounding the structure are concrete fermenters and stainless-steel tanks.
