Star Trek producer Douglas Cramer once stored his collection of fine art inside the ivy-covered building that stands at 5249 Foxen Canyon Road. But in 1995, the Firestone family acquired the scenic property to open Curtis Winery. Today, paintings still adorn the winery's walls, but French oak barrels and stomping bins create a more rustic ambience.
Small-lot winemaking techniques are at the heart of the Firestone family's wines. Grapes are harvested by hand, gently de-stemmed, and stomped for juices that ferment in open-top bins. Visitors to the winery can sip syrah, Mourvèdre, and other varietals.

“Very attentive, cordial staff (and we are a couple in our sixties, not attracting any special attention), who were willing to discuss what they were pouring, but not overly pushy at interjecting themselves into the customers' experience or in making sales pitch. The chocolates that were paired with the wine were very high quality, enhancing the feeling of indulgence.”
“Welcoming, friendly atmosphere, LOVED the wine, and the servers were very knowledgeable and personable. ”
