Purchased by Roger Bower in 2012, Crown Point is an estate winery dedicated to crafting wines of the highest distinction. Nestled in the eastern-most foothills of the east-to-west transverse valley of the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA (American Viticultural Area), Crown Point is blessed with distinct climatic conditions and soil types that provide an ideal growing environment for Bordeaux varieties.

Winemaker Adam Henkel joined Roger in 2013. Adam, who spent 10 years in the Napa Valley, including eight years at Harlan Estate in Oakville, had long been fascinated by the viticultural diversity and geographical grandeur of Santa Barbara County. His pursuit at Crown Point has been to express the unique characteristics and individuality of the region’s preeminent vineyards through farming and winemaking at the highest possible level.

Roger engaged Philippe Melka in 2017 as part of his commitment to constant improvement and excellence.

At Crown Point Vineyards, we offer a unique tasting experience to help educate our members and guests as to why our estate is an ideal place for growing Bordeaux varieties. The private tour & tasting allows you to learn how Crown Point was founded, share Roger Bower’s vision for this special property, and experience, first-hand, that no expense has been spared to develop the vineyard and winery. The experience starts with a guided tour through 50 acres of estate vineyards followed by a walking tour through the winery and barrel rooms. The tour finishes with a seated tasting of our estate wines and a cheese pairing.

We will do whatever we can to accommodate friends of Crown Point. All tastings are by appointment only, and we can arrange private visits on a limited basis for members and guests Monday through Friday.
