Wonderful new space with eager staff and wonderful wines. The price point is on the high side though which kept us from purchasing much.

My wife and I brought another couple for a tasting and some cheese. Had the Cab Tasting, some rose and a Pinot. Wine was fantastic, service was good and had a really nice time. Everyone was knowledgeable and had great attitudes. Both couples purchased some wine and I think you turned our guests into big Vineyard29 fans.

The wines were very good, albeit different from many of the other winery visits. The Zin was built like a cab wanna be and expensive and the white table wine was creamy, but without much character. Overall, I thought the wines were.very expensive relative to other wineries, but relative to expensive wines, not as good. Also, there is no education or background given on the wines.

You walk straight into a swanky, eclectic, friendly wine bar. The delicious wine is paired with artisan popcorn and the space is full of fun! Add a personalized lock to the fence outside, watch vintage films on the large screen, roll the CRU dice, even tag the bathroom with calendar pages. Talk about stimulating the senses! Thanks CRU, you made our Friday night!
