Cru Winery Marks 20th Year with Tastings, Dinners and Commemorative Bottling

CRŪ Winery isaid it is celebrating its 20th anniversary with special tastings, wine dinners and a commemorative 20th anniversary bottling.

Wine lovers can take part in CRŪ Winery's 20th anniversary tastings at their Santa Lucia Highlands and Central Valley tasting rooms Sept. 9 & 10. These tastings will highlight the unique vineyards and regions on the Central Coast that CRŪ Winery sources from and will showcase wines rarely included on their tasting menus. In addition, the tastings will include a sneak peek of their highly anticipated Regan Vineyards Pinot Noir which will be released in 2024.

CRŪ Winery is also celebrating the 20th anniversary beyond their tasting rooms with a series of wine dinners hosted at fine restaurants throughout California.

To further commemorate their anniversary, CRŪ Winery bottled a limited number of 20th anniversary magnums of their signature SLH Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Winemaker Jose Reyes handpicked the Smith & Lindley vineyard for this bottling to pay homage to CRŪ Winery's history and longstanding relationship with the Smith Family that farms this  vineyard.

CRŪ Winery was founded in 2003 and for many years the modest winery only produced enough cases to be shared locally. They crafted wines from throughout California trying various appellations and ultimately landed on the Central Coast as the best location for their premium wine production. Today, CRŪ Winery crafts wines from prestigious vineyards throughout the Central Coast, is distributed nationally and in select international markets and has tasting rooms in Monterey County and the Central Valley.
