WINE TASTING experience

Santa Ynez, California

An exceptional wine experience that transcends the ordinary, where captivating panoramas and extraordinary wines are ready to be discovered. Every step of the way, a dedicated host will be by your side, guiding you through the private estate. Gain insights and knowledge about the vineyard, the intricacies of the cellar, and the profound winemaking ethos that defines Crown Point.


At the heart of the Crown Point estate stands a lovingly retrofitted horse barn, transformed into a state-of-the-art winery. The cellar, nestled within the estate’s core and surrounded by 45 acres of flourishing vines, truly marks this as a quintessential estate vineyard.

Inside the winery, guests are greeted by a stunning array of French oak barrels and upright wooden oak fermenters. Blending traditional winemaking techniques with modern innovation, the winery employs concrete fermenters and stainless-steel tanks.

Crown Point’s commitment to excellence and sustainability is palpable in the design and equipment of the winery. This ensures meticulous oversight of every stage of the winemaking process, culminating in exceptional wines that magnificently showcase the vineyard’s distinctive terroir.


In an exclusive setting adjacent to the winery, guests are treated to a secluded private tasting. Each guest receives a personalized tasting mat, refreshing Acqua Panna water, and the estate’s own extra virgin olive oil. Encased in two hand-blown Zalto glasses, the current Cabernet Sauvignon & Estate Selection blend awaits, promising a sensory journey like no other. The environment is perfect for savoring the wines, engaging with companions, and posing questions to your dedicated host. As you journey through Crown Point Vineyards, you’ll encounter a symphony of flavors, scents, and sights that reflect the essence of Santa Ynez Valley. Elevate your understanding of wine craftsmanship, enveloped by stunning views and wines that exquisitely embody the spirit of the land.
