cellar TOUR

At the heart of the Crown Point estate stands an old horse barn retrofitted into an immaculate state-of-the-art winery. Inside the winery, visitors will find an impressive display of French oak barrels alongside upright wooden oak fermenters. We blend traditional winemaking methods with modern technology, incorporating concrete fermenters and stainless-steel tanks. Crown Point’s commitment to quality and sustainability is evident in the winery’s design and equipment, ensuring meticulous management of every step in the winemaking process to produce exceptional wines that showcase the vineyard’s unique terroir.

wine pairing

Secluded in a private location adjacent to the winery, we provide each guest with a personalized tasting mat, Acqua Panna water, and a sample of our estate extra virgin olive oil from our Mission and Manzanillo olive trees.

Within three hand-blown Zalto glasses, you’ll have the pleasure of tasting our current Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate Selection (blend), and library bottlings. A carefully curated cheese pairing (Goat cheese from Spain, Sheep cheese from France, and Aged Cheddar from Wisconsin), selected by Crown Point and prepared by our local cheesemonger Lucky Hen Larder, complements the wine.

The wine tasting experience offers the perfect atmosphere for guests to enjoy the wines with companions and engage with their personal host with any questions.
