A Very Limited Engagement

An exceptional pre fixe dinner hosted by SoHo Sushi, paired with the highly ranked and exquisitely produced, Crown Point Vineyards and presented by Award Winning Winemaker, Simon Faury.

About The Winery

Crown Point Vineyards is located in an idyllic location 12 miles north of the Pacific Ocean, nestled between the Santa Ynez coastal range and the San Rafael mountains. The vineyard benefits from a mild Mediterranean climate, perfect for growing a diverse range of grape varietals.  The stress-inducing rocky soil, combined with the climate, creates a unique balance ideal for producing exceptional wines. Crown Point Vineyards is committed to sustainable viticulture practices, ensuring that the grapes are grown in harmony with the environment. This approach results in distinguished wines that showcase the terroir of the vineyard and reflect the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship.

After Proprietor Roger Bower purchased the estate in 2012, he was sipping his favorite Cabernet as he enjoyed the views from the beautiful arbor at his home. This scene, almost parallel to the view of Crown Point’s highest elevation of 930 feet, was the moment he would name his wine — Crown Point.  Roger shares, “As you can imagine from the breathtaking views I felt like I had discovered the jewel of Happy Canyon. I immediately thought of Crown Point and checked if it was taken, and luckily it was not.”


Each Crown Point release is a pure representation of the specific and diverse terroir from our vineyard. Every year we are blessed with stunning wines from amazing growing seasons.

Crown Point’s Relevant Red

After countless failed attempts, Roger received his inspiration as he was tasting barrel samples blended together. He found himself repeating that Cabernet Sauvignon is a must for this blend. The Petit Verdot is relevant for this blend. The Malbec is relevant for this blend. The Syrah is relevant for this blend. As Roger continued to taste the wines, he fell in love with the idea of calling it a relevant wine, and the name “Relevant Red” was born.

Crown Point’s Estate Selection

After the first vintage of the Relevant Red, Roger dreamed of an estate blend to have a name that truly represented what the wine encompassed. As he continued each day to look over the property from the original site, he reflected on why this is all possible. In Roger’s eyes, this was all possible because as a team they had taken every component from the estate to craft each bottle of wine, produced at Crown Point. From that moment in 2014, he knew that the estate blend’s name would be the Estate Selection.

Crown Point’s Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon , as we all know, is one of the best red wine grape varieties in the world, and thrives in diverse climates and growing conditions. At Crown Point, we produce 12 different varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon planted throughout our 50 acres, typically planted on the rockier hillsides where vines have never been planted before.

Simon Faury, Crown Point’s Winemaker, was born and raised in Lyon, France. He earned his master’s degree in Viticulture and Enology from the University of Bordeaux before embarking on a journey that would take him to some of the most prestigious wineries in the world.
