Wine University Merlot

Wine University Merlot

Crystal Basin is Pleased to Announce our November’s subject for Wine University – Merlot!

Crystal Basin is All About the education element of wine. Believe us, there is Always more to know abou the subject! Our Wine University program is a sit-down 90 minute tasting and presentation by our very own (and uber-wine-geeky) Mike Owen. Each class focuses on a varietal or a region or a wine family that is accompanied by wines paired with small bites to enhance the learning experience. Wine University classes are $25 for club members and come with some Serious Deals for students and alumni! Wine University classes are held on Sundays from November to May in the Barrel Room in Camino.

Sip Shop Sip

Sip Shop Sip

Join us for our annual “Sip Shop Sip” event at Crystal Basin Cellars in Camino, CA.

Each year on Small Business Saturday, we bring in even smaller businesses to the winery and have a craft fair. These folks bring in really unique, cute and sometimes tasty goodies so our customers can pick out some creative gift ideas. The day doesn’t cost anything and it’s a great way to get the family out of the house and away from the Football games. Burn off some turkey and enjoy some great wines and craft goodies at our “Sip Shop Sip” event at Crystal Basin Cellars in Camino, CA. Want to put together a basket with CBC wines and cheeky goodies? Sip-Shop-Sip is your Big Chance! Join us for the festivities this year on November 26, 2022 from 11am to 5pm. See You There!

Celebrate Battleborn Culture with a trip over to visit the wineries along Carson Road off Highway 50.

Better yet, make a Crystal Basin and quench some of that thirst from all that Trail Dust.

We’ll be hosting folks in the barrel room to sample our 2021 vintage before it’s bottled.

Veggie Truck

Veggie Truck

We’ll have a Veggie Truck at our Camino location this October 15th and 16th.

Uncle Bob, one of our founders was a most colorful and talented guy. His daughter Ilisa and her family carry on with that tradition by leveraging their Green Thumbs to grow mounds of Red Tomatoes along with some tasty peppers and some sizeable zucchinis.

They have teamed up with the winery to get this veggie bounty to the CBC customer base.

Visit the last Tomato Truck weekend on October 15th and 16th and take home a bag of garden goodness.

Better yet, leave a small donation to the El Dorado Food Bank and CBC will match it a the end of October!
