White Crane Winery Description

Perched atop Crane Ridge overlooking the beautiful Livermore Valley is the unassuming tasting room of White Crane Winery. The small converted barn hosts visitors interested in a wide variety of small-lot, limited-production premium wines. Most releases are between 90 and 500 cases. The funky red-roofed tasting room is accessed by big barn doors that open into the small crowded room, where two tasting bars host visitors. Gourmet olive oils and wine accessories are available.

The White Crane Winery label features estate-grown Cabernet, Chardonnay,
Petite Sirah and a Chardonnay Port. Additionally, they produce Cabernet
Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Zinfandel and a Port made from traditional
Portuguese grapes. The handcrafted wines are made using American, French and Hungarian oak barrels. Their value-oriented label, Winery 21, offers a sparkling wine, a White Zinfandel, Pinot Grigio, Viognier and Cabernet Sauvignon. Wines are available only through the tasting room, their wine club, and for special events. The winery also has a tasting room on the coast in Capitola near Santa Cruz.

Also on the property is a small luxurious inn with panoramic views of Livermore Valley.

cchhor, Livermore
This was our second stop that day. Although the place was small, we found it to be very intimate and comforting. The server was very friendly and full of knowledge and chatter. Most of the whites were a bit sweet for my taste, but I loved the varieties that we sampled. The Black Mambo was a surprising wine. I loved especially the young cab and the syrah. The barbera and the Bordeaux were also great. The barrel wine was a port and although I am not a fan of port, I found it pleasing.
