Had a group tasting at Crane Creek Vineyards one evening. The view over the vineyards is lovely. The food was great and the wines interesting. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

I found out personally that before you attempt to book an event there you better tell them your political affiliation. If it doesn’t match their affiliation you’ll be told that you can’t hold an event there.More

David Sanford was extremely knowledgeable and helpful during our wine tasting and we enjoyed the beautiful setting while sipping our wine. Lots of seating options allows a variety of groups, couples, and assorted visitors to enjoy the view and conversation without feeling crowded.

They do tours on some Saturdays, I would call the tasting room and ask about the schedule. Otherwise, it is just the wine tasting. They also do tours on some of the festival days during the day.

The tasting charge was something like $10 to try five wines and maybe $15 for seven... but I could be off.. that’s by memory, and the wine was good :) Tours are only on Saturdays - $30 I think. Definitely worth a visit!
