February 5, 2022 : Camino
Crystal Basin’s Uncle Bob was, in the very meaning of the phrase, a Jolly Good Fellow.
Bob helped found our company and still contributes to our hospitality style every day.
We celebrate his birthday each year and some version of an anti-Super Bowl event.
Q: Why do we call his birthday celebration Dinty Day?
A: When the tasting room was winery first opened in Camino, Mike showed up with glassware and signs and other gifty items to put on the shelves. Uncle Bob was incensed. His quote: “We’re not a gift shop, we’re a winery. We might as well sell Dinty Moore Beef Stew.”
