Our Story

Our commitment to this land is unwavering, as is our goal of making the best wine possible from Crown Point. As our vineyard grows, so will we, with a promise to showcase this special site through profound wines with true sense of place.

The Vineyard

Crown Point is nestled amongst the foothills of the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA, where the east-west running Santa Ynez mountain range intersects with the north-south San Rafael mountain range. The east-west traverse mountain range is a geographical anomaly in itself, and only one of a few in the world. The mountains that flank the valley channel the cool oceanic winds into the very warm Happy Canyon every evening, creating a fifty-degree swing between daytime high and nighttime low temperatures.

These distinct climatic conditions, coupled with the vineyard’s south-facing orientation and its gravely loam soil studded with mineral-laden rocks, are all factors in what make Crown Point a profoundly unique place to grow Bordeaux grape varieties.

Crown Point is a 104-acre ranch, 50 acres of which are planted to vines, predominantly Bordeaux varieties.

Winery Intro

The Winery

Originally built as a horse barn in 1999 with a collective car garage, the winery building has been transformed into a state-of-the-art facility, purposefully designed to accommodate the demands of the vineyard and the high standard to which the wines from Crown Point are held.

The connecting theme in our wines is attention to detail: from the vineyard, to the winery, to bottling, to the table—everything is done to the highest standard. We have equipped the estate winery with the tools we need to capture the best of what Crown Point can produce.
