We stopped in to pick up some wine for the holidays. All the Pinot's were amazing! Nate was very helpful and he gave us a few extra pours to double check our choices. I ended up renewing my wine club membership. Cru is a diamond in the rough for sure. I highly suggest you check it out. It's hard to... More

Cru Winery is very nice. The wines are very good and reawsonably prices. The tasting room is quite pleasant as well and the hosts and hostesses who serve and explain the wine. They also have music on special nights, and can be an event center.

We've belonged to wine clubs all over California, but this one is a keeper. They have a great selection of wine. Moreover, their staff is fabulous! They remember your name... just like Cheers! Who doesn't love that?? Sometimes we aren't there for months, but when we walk in we are greeted by name. It gives the experience a little something... More

Just off the 99 fwy, about a quarter mile. The establishment is a quant little winery with a outside patio for sitting. Three tasting for $5, however... More

Driving north on Rte 99. Stopped at Crū. What a GREAT tasting. Six wines became eight. Knowledgable servers. Arguably the best wines we've sampled in CA. Came for a short visit. Spent over an hour. Purchased four bottles. Got several recommendations for lunch in Turlock, one hour north. Definitively worth a stop and taste. Cheers!

Disappointed. My wife and I were excited to try this winery. We had seen a wine list that looked to offer the types of wine we like. But, they don't ship to all states. Their map looks like several states east of the Mississippi are not on their shipping list. Advice: always ask if the winery will ship to your... More

My husband and I stopped on our way to Yosemite. It was a nice break. Tried 6 wines for $5 each and if you buy a bottle of wine, one of the tastings is free. Most of their wines are made from grapes brought in. Enjoyed the wine and talking to the girl behind the counter. Would definitely recommend.

I think it would be a great place to sit outside to enjoy a meal, some wine, and live music, but I was just passing through. Staff was outstanding!
