I'm an admitted wine snob. The place was gorgeous. The setting couldn't have been more beautiful and the staff were fantastic. The gift shop was excellent! the snacks provided wonderful. The wine....not so much. Again, remember I am an admitted wine snob. I am super picky about my wine and unfortunately these just didn't cut it for me. I would... More

We stayed here on out honeymoon for 2 wonderful day! They were more than accommodating when we asked for a midnight check in. When we arrived in the cowboy suite we were welcomed by a bottle of house wine, as well as a special wedding present; another bottle of wine, bag of extra sweet treats, and a gorgeous arrangement of...

Being that my nickname is Bear, I had to visit Bear Creek Winery just to have a look. When I travel, I do try to find local establishments to enjoy and support. The place is quaint and the staff was very friendly (gosh, I think all of Homer is friendly). I did the $5 wine tasting and picked out what... More

We were in Homer for the week and decided to stop by. It's a really nice place. Its run by a family in Homer, and the wines they produce are really good. They purchase berries and rhubarb and other fruit from the locals to use in the wines. First we took a tour of the production building, the guide was... More

We have been to Beer Creek several times each time we enjoyed the experience. We always enjoy the wine tasting and end up buying a few bottles. They are surprisingly good at berry wines. The bar is very nice and the staff is user friendly. We will be back.

Nice little winery, lots of blends using Alaska berries, rhubarb. Not a poor wine in the batch! Nice touches were tiny cubes of Parmesean cheeses for cleansing the palate and chocolate paired with the Port. Staff was excellent.

In Homer with family...my wife, daughter and soninlaw enjoyed the wine tasting. My five year old grandson and I enjoyed wandering the grounds. We found the turtle pond and watched them and the fish. We explored the garden path looking around. And found it an easy way to keep him busy for a few minutes while the others did the... More

My traveling companion and I stayed at the winery two nights, and we enjoyed the wine tasting each night, so much so that we both brought wines home with us. The area is beautiful, the hot tub was nice, and the room was nice, but it is better suited for a couple or a family. There are two guest suites,... More

I had their Alaskan chardonnay at the Little Mermaid and loved it, so I visited and tried their other wines. Sometimes wine blended with fruit can taste kind of gimmicky, but Bear Creek creates mixtures where the flavors truly enhance each other. The Alaskan chardonnay, which has rhubarb added, is sublime. I would have bought a case, but they are... More

This was a fun little gem to stumble upon in Homer. All of the wines we sampled were very good and we even brought a case back with us to the lower 48. The Salmonberry wine was very unique and shows how they use what is available for wine in AK.
