ABOUT US

At Crystal Basin Cellars, we are proud to serve you wine that you will no doubt enjoy. All of our wines are crafted from grapes that have been grown and nurtured within 30 miles of our winery.

All of our grapes are hand-picked and fermentations are manually managed including hand punch downs. We elevate our wines for 18 months in the barrel before bottling them. The wines you’ll sample in our tasting rooms are perfectly aged for you immediate enjoyment or then can be laid down to improve for 3 to 5 years.

As a team, we want to give you the best wine tasting experience that you have ever had. We would love for you to come down and enjoy the wine with us and enjoy our hospitality.

Ahhh man, whats not to love about this place? Delicious wine in Apple Hill? Count me in! I haven't been in this area for years and so glad I got invited to the Wine Yelp Event. Although I love drinking wine, I'm still very new and know little about the wine making process. Mike was super informative and was able to show us the vineyard right across the street from the place. We were able to taste the grapes straight from the vine! Whatt?? Being a new wine lover, I haven't developed a taste for red wines yet BUT after tasting a few of their samples, I had to stay after the event to do another tasting. I bought me a bottle of Merlot and the bubbly which were both yummy! I would definitely be back in this winery, despite the terrible Apple Hill traffic, my experience here was great.

Crystal Basin recently threw open its cellar doors to welcome a group of enthusiastic Yelpers for a terrific midday tour. The event included some initial bubbly tasting, a few welcome remarks from the event hosts, then a stroll across Carson Road for some Zinfandel grape tasting straight from the vine. We then sampled some fine 2015 Zinfandel right there in the vineyard. Upon returning to the main barn where the cellar and tasting room are located, we had the opportunity to taste 2018 Zins from three different blocks and then the really fun part commenced: we got to play mad wine scientists and make our blends! The owner, Mike Owen, told us about the process of "punching down" to mix the macro bins of grapes, which hold a half ton of what is arguably the ~real~ magical fruit. After the official event ended, we bellied up to their tasting room bar and tried all of their offerings. Ended up with a half case and new members of CBC's Ascendance Club. Thanks, Crystal Basin Cellars!

What a beautiful day to spend learning about the making of wine in the enchanted Apple Hill area. We were graciously invited to spend the day with a walking tour of the winery and an educational presentation filled with information about the wine making process and a chance to be one on one with the experts at Crystal Basin Cellars This is my first time officially doing the wine tasting thing and it was a pleasant surprise nestled along the trees in the beautiful Camino, California area. The winery itself has the amazing aroma of wine, grapes and oak wine barrels that I have learned last usually around 5 years or until they begin to leak. We tasted a multiple variety of red wines and got to see how the wines were processed and how the origin of the names of the wines were given. Mike the owner was very informative and answered many of the groups questions and even gave every one of us a Passport for future wine tastings. The winery also has lots of wine oriented items for sale. I definitely will be visiting again soon.

What a really nice winery. Jeremy and I spent a few hours there over the weekend. Of course the Apple Hill traffic was gnarly, but it was so worth the travel time to hang at this beautiful winery. We were very impressed with the quality of the wine, and how much love and energy the winery owners put into their vintners. Smoky, smooth, mellow, smooth, favorable, light, delicious are all words that come to mind when thinking about Crystal Basin wine. We are already talking about our next trip up. Had a wonderful time.

Visit Crystal Basin Cellars and you won't be disappointed. I am a wine n00b, but I loved it so much I became a member. The staff is so friendly and helpful, you can tell they like wine AND people. Every time I go there I make new friends. Also, they are always doing some sort of tour or special event. They even arrange some cool wine centered vacations like a European river cruise. I come all the way from West Sac to Camino because it's worth it. The prices per bottle are very reasonable. Also, there are other wineries and restaurants within a very short walk that they encourage you to visit as well. Christmas is coming, so I am definitely going to purchase some gifts there. Yay!
