  • We been purchasing Crane Lake Wines for decades. Excellent, flavorful Sangiovese as a table wine. However our last purchase of the 2911 Sangiovese was so bad we couldn't drink it. As we poured out we saw that something was wrong. It had the color of a rosé. The taste even worst. Got a whole case of it unfortunately at the Berkeley Bowl. I think ...

  • Crane Lake Sangiovese 2011

    Snoothrank:

    I like this wine because for the price it tastes well when I'm realizing that a good wine does not have to be expensive, although it may not win any awards, than again maybe it should. Read More

  • My wife and I love your wines. We usually buy the diving on blanc and the petit Sarah. We buy a case of each and for the price it is the best deal out there. We will be heading out to San Francisco in August and hope to visit your winery.

  • I am on a strict gluten-free diet. Do any of the Crane Lake wines contain glutens from any source?

  • Love your Crane Lake Wines but last evenig when i went to serve my dinner guest, i was surprised when i opened the bottle and found Merlot instead of Zinfandel. The lable read Zinfandel. Two of the guest prefer the Zinfandel and not the Merlot. It would have been a great April fools antic. Marilyn Sanders csanders4@new.rr.com

  • Malbec, Shiraz, and Pino are very satisfying. When you look at the other reviews I think it's quite clear what a good value Crane Lake is.

  • They have a really wide selection of varietals. Malbec, sangiovese, syrah, petit syrah etc. And though not stunning, blow you away wines, they do reflect the grape and they are nice, everyday bottles of wine. Did I mention the price is great?

  • I love the Malbec. For the price (which is so low, I don't want to mention) it can not be beat!
