Crystal Basin Cellars

What began as Mike Owen's small winemaking venture in a private basement in 1981 blossomed into a full-scale commercial operation by 2000. Under the name Crystal Basin Cellars, Mike and the team have continued to rely on the principles that helped them grow: they source all their grapes from local vineyards, and work with a team of part-time but dedicated wine enthusiasts. Their efforts have won them numerous accolades at the California State Fair, including a double-gold award for Best Syrah in 2013.

Just next door to the independent winery, unassumingly housed inside a former Chevron gas station, is Crystal Basin Bistro. Warm, earth-toned interiors surround patrons with quirky design elements such as a giant metal spoon, spatula, and whisk hung from the ceiling, and an outdoor patio lets them soak up the sun or practice bald-eagle calls. Internationally influenced shared plates such as carnitas tacos, Russian cheese bread, and Asian-style pork dumplings pair with the winery's renowned private-label and bistro wines, some with names inspired by jazz-age references in pop culture. Regularly, the bistro and winery explode with live-music events such as the summer concert series. From May to October, the lawn fills with music from local and nationally recognized acts such as Laurie Morvan, Ronnie Montrose Band Remembered, and the Styx tribute band Renegade Rocks.

Customer Reviews

I truly love Crystal Basin Cellars they are awesome. So awsome that I had to join the wine club. Great wine...great people...great times.

We had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the variety of wines, food and the personable staff. It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

We had to go on a weekend because we work during the week. They are very popular and were very busy and accommodated us as best they could. I recommend going when it's not high season for Apple Hill to avoid some of the crowds. The wine is fantastic and Mike is very entertaining. We joined their wine club and plan to buy futures when we return to pick up our next club selections. The barrel tastings were wonderful and Mike included a history lesson that was greatly appreciated! We had a great time!
