My friends and I shared great wine and tapas on a late summer's eve recently. After a complete tasting of skimmerhorn's wine we floated to our patio table to enjoy some excellent tapas and more wine of course. Very friendly people and a great scenic view completed a memorable experience.

Having done many Okanagan wineries you will be pleasantly surprised with the quality and range of wines. Great whites, I found the Reds a bit sweet for my palate- and the Apple Pie dessert wine was exceptional!!! Cheese plates from a local cheese maker are available to sit on the shaded deck to enjoy a spectacular view of the Skimmerhorn... More

One of Creston's hidden gems... charming hilltop winery that offers some delightful whites. Enjoy a glass with tapas or dessert on their deck, surrounded by flowers, overlooking the vineyard, Purcell range and the lush river valley. It doesn't get much better (and friendlier) than this. The staff are generous and delightfully real and personable for an established winery. We loved... More

We make Skimmerhorn a regular stop when we are in the Creston area: not only to pick up a supply of great wine (which always runs out before we are back) but to have a super lunch.

Stopped in late in the day and enjoyed the tasting. When we asked if we could buy a bottle and have a glass of it on the deck, they said sure. It was 5pm and they closed at 530 but they let us stay and enjoy the wine and a beautiful view, complete with hummingbirds checking out the feeders on... More

While visiting family in Cranbrook, we were looking for things to do around the area and located this winery in Creston that offered a tour. We were greeted as soon as we entered and offered wine tasting. While waiting for the tour to start we were able to enjoy our favorite glass with an excellent appetizer from their tapas menu...

This winery is one of three in the valley, another one is next door. Location is a bit congested in the front end drive. Park in the rear of the winery! The wines are very reasonably priced. They offer both interior and exterior seating to enjoy the food from their cafe.

Stopped here after reading Trip Advisor things to do in Creston. Found this beautiful winery with tasting building under gorgeous trees. Free wine tasting of excellent quality wines, we also had a tapas lunch with a glass of chilled wine each on the patio. Staff were well informed and very pleasant. The visit was set off with a humming bird... More
