Don't sleep on the homemade sangria options - they were THE BEST thing I tried at Crown Valley Winery!
4.0 of 5 bubblesSep 2021
On our first trip to Sainte Genevieve a few weeks back, we decided to take in a few winery stops. Crown Valley Winery made the cut and we are so glad we went. Crown Valley is actually located in Coffman, MO. It is a rather large winery and they do have a Brewing Company (but are not on the same site). There is a really large entry into Crown Valley and it looks big enough for plenty of cars, trucks, or even buses. We were glad there were not many people joining us right at 11 am, so we pretty much walked straight through to the tasting bar. For the cost of a $7.50 tasting (+ tax) the Crown Valley tasting menu includes trying up to five wines or sangrias. You are provided a list of all of their bottled wines and bottled sangrias and informed there will be some homemade sangria options as well. I ended up trying two red wines and a white wine, but I was really only impressed by the homemade sangria options. In fact, after my tasting of the five was over, I went back for additional full size servings of the Strawberry Cooler Sangria. A BIG winner in my book! The outdoor seating area at Crown Valley Winery is huge but there is no longer a restaurant here and the snack bar is VERY limited. (I cannot remember if you can bring food in, but it would definitely be worth a look before I go back.) Absolutely a wonderful place to watch the world go by on a beautiful day with friends. Just be prepared with some snacks in the car or eat before you go! We'll be back!

Stopped by the winery on a bike ride on Saturday, June 9th and it was packed. The weather was beautiful and even though there were long lines, the staff kept them moving. We were able to get our bottle of wine quickly and find a spot to sit. The band was excellent and everyone seemd to be enjoying themselves After awhile, we decided to get something to eat. I ordered the bison burger - absolutely delicious! It was quite a burger with a generous helping of fries. Just the thing I needed to fill up my tank before heading back out. All in all, we had great service, great music and a great time at Crown Valley!

Yes, you do have to pay for tastings, but that is true of almost all of the wineries around Ste. Genevieve. If you don't want to pay for tastings, you will need to tour wineries elsewhere. The staff was very pleasant, especially the ladies behind the bar. The view is beautiful and they have a deli inside. The samples they give are very generous, more than what you would get at a free tasting.

We tried to make a reservation using a Groupon we purchased and we found them to be quite difficult. Each time we called we were told the reservation system was down and that they would call us back the next day. They never called us back and when we called again the system was still down. The Groupon required a visit Monday through Thursday, and after significant difficulty arranging our week day schedules we were told that they are no longer open on Tuesdays and we'll have to make the reservation at another time. This changed the terms of the deal and was going to make it impossible for us to make the reservation before the Groupon expired. We asked if they would extend the expiration period and we were told no. They also proceeded to tell us it was a bad economy and there was a strong implication that they regretting signing up with Groupon. The whole thing made me feel like they were trying to get out of their end of the bargain. The bright side is that Groupon addressed this to our satisfaction immediately. Groupon is definitely a first rate company. Crown Valley might consider taking a lesson in customer service, contractual agreements, and good will.

Sunday afternoon, October 23, I visited Crown Valley Brewing & Distilling with my girlfriend and her sister. The beer was good, but food sucked and the service was horrible. The bartender that "sort of" waited on us was drunk, had trouble understanding a simple order, said that he didn’t know how to make a Bloody Mary and thus we needed to order something else. It took him forever to make two vodka tonics at $5 each. We ordered the Chicken Nachos and the bartender gave us a pager, but he forgot to turn it on, thus the pager never went off. When I checked on our order, the same bartender lied and said that he "looked for us on the patio, but couldn’t find us" when we were sitting RIGHT NEXT TO THE BAND and there only about 10 tables that had people. Then he told me that they threw away our order; then the kitchen guy said that said he ate the nachos. The drunken bartender said he would fix everything, but then proceeded to chat with one of his buddies for 10 minutes, so I asked another bartender for help. The other bartender helped, but poured the wrong beer and then overcharged me. While at the bar, another customer mentioned that he just had the Beef Nachos and the meat was so tough that it couldn’t be swallowed and showed me the cubed meat chunks in the bottom of the paper bowl they were served-in. The Chicken Nachos were no better and consisted of cold reconstituted cheese on stale chips with cubed chicken. They sucked, but we were so hungry that we ate them. A half-hour later, my girlfriend saw the same drunk bartender sitting on the patio participating in a drinking contest with is buddies seeing who could slam-down the beer sampler the fastest. I suspect that Crown Valley invested a ton of money into the building, but they need edible food and should fire the incompetent bartenders or management may also be looking for new jobs soon.

The only friendly staff member was at the front desk. The rest were not welcoming at all. You are no longer able to bring picnic baskets, which I knew ahead of time, but decided to visit Crown anyway. According to the website, picnic baskets are not allowed because of 'using the grounds like a public park' and the messes left behind. Not surprisingly, Crown now sells sandwiches and pizza . . . took over an hour (!) for an 8" pizza to be finished and the place was not crowded at all. There were not many people there yesterday and service was still this slow! Good luck in the busy season. Oh, and you should have seen the messes left on the tables from the 'new food service'. It was WAY worse than I ever saw it with picnic baskets! They will allow a 10" X 6" cooler if you join their $100 a year 'club'. Really Crown? Really?!? There are many other wineries in this vicinity that haven't gotten so greedy. This place is very commercialized now. If you want a 'city' winery experience, go to Crown. If you want a warm, friendly, inviting winery experience, visit one of the many other wineries that are close by.

We were disappointed when we visited this winery. You paid for the tastings and when you asked for crackers to cleanse your palate you were told you could purchase them. The wines weren't good enough for us to even buy a bottle. We live near the gorgeous Shawnee Wine Trail in Southern Illinois and our wineries put this one to shame even though it is a large operation. Maybe that is their problem. Visit Chaumette winery or Charleyville as their staff and wines are so much better than anything that Crown Valley has to offer.

We stayed at a Crown owned B&B and visited the Brewery. We were not impressed by the customer service on the phone trying to arrange the reservation at the winery but it got worse when we got there. They told us incorrect information about the accomodations and were not very helpful at all. We had a pleasant time visiting other wineries in the area but when we got to the brewery we were appalled. The service was horrible. The employees were rude and obviously did not care about serving us! We will not be returning to any establishment with the crown name.

My family reunion decided to go to the brewery building to watch the world cup final. There were no more than 10 other people in the building when we arrived so we quickly became the majority of customers. The manager was hesitant to put the game on any of their dozen TVs, but finally put it on one tv on the far side of the room. When we asked to move tables together so we could sit together he expressed concern for damaging the flooring. We ordered the sampler beers so we could figure out what we wanted to order and the beers were served unlabeled so we still had no idea what beer to order. We asked to open a tab - nope, not allowed. We asked if we could leave a credit card at the bar - nope. Clearly management is more concerned with maintaining their rules than making money. We were coming to have a good time and spend money. In the end, it was just too much work, so we settled with one beer each and left. Too bad.

This is the worst winery I have ever visited. Upon our arrival we were immediately greeted with the "winery cops" that are all over the place. My friend who was not feeling good due to our long trip down there, had her bottled water taken out of her hand because "you must buy Crown Valley Winery water". They saw a half empty soda in my bag and I was made to throw it away. Just be prepared to have your bags searched. When we settled into a table, we were then approache by another "Crown Valley Cop" and told our table was in the wrong spot and needed to be moved. We had to gather all of our food and wine and glasses and WE had to move our table where they thought it should be. I mean we just came in and sat down at the tables they provided?? If they thought it was in the wrong spot, then they should move it!!! Not to mention the live band and the concession window underneath the pavilion. Of course, packed with "winery police". It was loud, crowded, and If I wanted that kind of atmosphere I could have saved the two hour trip and went to a local bar and grill. There are so many beautiful wineries in Mo. to pick from and we had to pick this commercialized "winery" with security everywhere watching your every move?? We just wanted to drink wine!!! Not move furniture and be policed!!!
