Welcome to the Sycamore Ranch Vineyard & Winery blog, here is where we will be highlighting events and news from around the winery.
To Our Valued Customers:
Sycamore Ranch Vineyard and Winery takes enormous pride in providing top quality, hand crafted wines and hard ciders in a clean, safe, and inviting environment. Due to concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we will be temporarily closing the tasting room.
We will, however, continue to allow walk-up retail sales and wine club pick-ups. We will be available Friday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm. Give us a call at (909) 338-1725 to make arrangements so we know when to expect you. Also, if you prefer, we can provide curbside pick-up service. When you call let us know your preference and we can meet you at your car.
For those of you who may be sheltering in place, we encourage to you to order our wines and hard ciders from the website. Good wine should make your isolation more tolerable and your purchase will help us mitigate some the losses incurred by the crisis. Rest assured we will be implementing additional sanitation procedures during the shipping and handling of your wines. Note to wine club members: remember to log-in to recieve your existing wine club discounts.
We still have several spring allocation wine club pick-up orders that have not been collected. Please contact us to schedule a convenient pick-up time, or if you prefer, we can deliver to your door ASAP.
We know how difficult the next few weeks will be, so for the next thirty days, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on all internet and wine club sales of 4 bottles or more. To apply just enter promo code FREE30 at checkout. We are also offering free, direct, door to door delivery for locals within 25 miles of the Ranch, call or email to arrange your delivery.
The health and safety of our customers and employees are our number one priority. We will continue to monitor all state, local and federal guidelines and regulations and will re-open as soon as state and local officials give us the green light. If you have an existing reservation, you will be given priority booking once the tasting room reopens.
Until we meet again stay positive, wash your hands, and remember to count each and every blessing.

Local Winery Wins Best in Class at LA International Wine Competition
Crestline Based Craft Winery Scores Gold with Limited Production Vintages
Crestline, CA June 28, 2018 – Sycamore Ranch Vineyard and Winery had 8 wines place in the Los Angeles International Wine Competition, held at the Los Angeles County Fairplex. This annual competition is considered one of the most prestigious and influential showcases for wineries both large and small. The winners produced by winemaker Richard Krumwiede include “Best in Class” for the 2016 Petite Sirah, 2016 Syrah, and with 94 total points the 2016 Grenache– made with grapes sourced from the Santa Ynez Valley and Paso Robles, California.
Other winning entries include Gold for the 2015 Altitude 4576’ made with a co-fermented blend of Zinfandel and Syrah grapes grown at the “Ranch” estate vineyard. Rounding out the other finalists– the 2016 Primitivo scored silver, while three entries were awarded bronze including the 2016 Ranch Red blend, 2016 Merlot, and the winery’s first ever, two-year barrel aged 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon.
“We are thrilled that our attention to detail is recognized (by) this prestigious international competition,” said Mr. Krumwiede. “We are always looking to exceed expectations both with the wines we make, and the tasting room experience we provide for our discerning visitors.”
All wines are produced at the “Ranch” located in the San Bernardino County community of Crestline, with fruit sourced from premier Central Coast vineyards. The small, craft winery and ciderworks is situated on 3 1/2 acres of picturesque vineyards, orchards, and beautifully landscaped grounds. The “Ranch” produces about 700 cases of Bordeaux and Rhone varietals per year.
Tastings, tours, and on-site sales are welcomed by appointment: (909)338-1725
