Description
We are a boutique winery nestled in the heart of the Creston Valley. Skimmerhorn Winery and Vineyard is a terroir-driven, small-batch winery and vineyard in Creston, BC that is part of the emerging Kootenays wine region. The Skimmerhorn mountain range to the east of the winery creates a unique microclimate for the winery’s cool climate wines, which include Pinot Gris, Ortega, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir and Marechal Foch. Our wineshop is open Wednesday - Sunday, 11am to 5pm and our bistro is open Wednesday - Sunday, 11:30am to 4pm. We look forward to seeing you soon!
