Our group of 8 came to Crystal Basin Cellars from the suggestion of 1 of our friends who lives in the area. We purchased a Sweet Jack deal for 6 wine tastings, tour, 1 bottle of wine, and 4 plates at the Bistro next door. Our friend was able to piggy back on our deal since he is a wine club member and there often.
The tasting room & wine facility are in an old building with a barn feel with old wood walls. The tasting room is a bit small with space for maybe 15 guests. There is a second tasting bar in the barn but it is only 6' long. You can easily walk around between rooms & outside. There are a few tables & chairs outside, Down the stairs towards the bistro is a large grass area with about 6-8 picnic tables. On this October day is was perfect weather in the upper 70's & full of sunshine.
The wines are very good. Everyone's palate is different and we all have our favorite varietals, so I wont judge the wines. I'm not a big fan of oaked Chard, but their unoaked Chard was pretty good, and I'm a Red guy.
The tour is average as all we did was go into the barrel room. My only negative was the man who we had in the tasting room & guide. He tried too hard to impress us with his average knowledge, and several times was incorrect.
When we were done with the tour & tasting we got some wine, went to the picnic area, got our food from the bistro (see separate review) and enjoyed the food & wine for lunch.
I would highly recommend this winery if you are in the area.
