Wine Tasting at Sycamore Ranch
Whether you are an accomplished wine taster, or just like a good swirl, this is worth a trip to find out what the fuss is about, and enjoy some of California’s famous wines and ciders.

Believe it or not, we have a Gold-Award craft winery and cider-works right here in our own back yard, nestled in the countryside about a mile north-east of Crestline. They have won two Golds and a Best of Show at the Los Angeles County Fair, and enter wine contests state wide.

The Sycamore Ranch Vineyard and Winery was founded by landscape architect Richard Krumwiede in 2012, and is now fully licensed and bonded. They have been written up in the Mountain News, here. They grow apples and some grapes locally on a 3.5 acre lot, but import most of their grapes from Central California, where growing conditions are better. They then produce and show the wines onsite. They aren’t selling in stores, yet, and only host wine tasting by appointment.

We have an appointment for Mountain Singles members and friends for Sunday, June 11, 2017, from 1 to 3 pm.

So, please join us for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon with friends, appetizers, and some of California’s finest wines and ciders. Weather is expected to be perfect - sunny, with a high near 68.

The price of admission is $15 per person, refundable with purchases.

The winery is located at 174 Dart Canyon Road, a 6-minute drive from Goodwin’s in Crestline. Go east on Lake Drive, around the lake and up the hill. Make a slight left turn onto Dart Canyon Road. Destination is another half mile on the left, just after a sharp right turn. If you reach a sharp left turn, you passed it.

A map is below. If you speak latitude and longitude, it’s at: 34.2529, -117.2590. The phone there is 909-338-1725.
