I tasted their reds, and found them interesting but not compelling. I thought the two blends needed some time in the bottle before the two grapes would mesh. I hope to return when their pinot noir is released next year. The setting is gorgeous (unfortunately quite smokey right now).

This winery has a memorable view of the Creston area. The wines aren't so bad either. It's unfortunate that the bistro is closed. Otherwise it is a must see when in creston. Enjoy the tasting bar while you're there.

We tasted some great wines - and brought some home. It wasn't tour day - but we looked around and enjoyed the time with the hostess. Unfortunately the bistro is closed. The views are so pretty. A great place to stop while in the area.

I made a reservation at the bistro so that we could head down to Skimmerhorn and check the place out during our vacation where we were staying near by Creston. I made the reservation 2 hours before the winery tour started and it was perfect timing. We weren't rushed, it gave us plenty of time to relax and we even... More

Lunch on the deck of the Bistro is always wonderful and delicious. Marlene is a terrific hostess. You're always well looked after. The chocolate dessert was amazing and loved the Cobb salad. I always watch in the spring for the new menu. Take your time and enjoy the view of the valley. Be sure to make a reservation. You sit... More

The spectacular view from the Bistro deck/balcony of the Creston Valley bookmarked on the east and west by beautiful mountains is in itself worth the trip to the Skimmerhorn Winery and Vinyard. Notwithstanding the view, the luncheon menu has a variety of items sufficient to satisfy the tastes of a broad spectrum of visitors. The food is well prepared and... More

Passed through Creston, BC which is not know as a hotbed for innovative cuisine. We followed the sign to the Skimmerhorn Winery & Bistro and had an excellent lunch with a very nice bottle of their Kootenay Crush White Wine. We tasted some of the other wines and found them very balanced and tasteful. The appetizer which we selected (... More

We drove over to Creston this summer to check out the wineries and grab some fruit. Skimmerhorn Winery was a pleasant experience, we really enjoyed our tasting (which was free) and purchased several bottle of delicious wine. We were so happy that we found some fantastic wineries in the Kootenays and don't have to travel to the Okanagan for the... More
