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.

We love their wines! Enjoyed the wine tasting and talking with Coleen. Learned a lot about their wines. Should be on your list of places to visit in Homer.

Let me preface this review by saying if you are a wine snob and can't appreciate that not everything grows the same as Napa Valley then I suggest you not bother going to Bear Creek, For the rest of us who appreciate people making the most of the local resources we enjoy the wine and the experience. The server was... More

This winery is such a fun place. We did not have time to tour the grounds or winery much but what we saw was inviting.. The 5 of us enjoyed sampling the different wines Bear Creek offers. Their wines are made with many different combinations of fruit instead of grapes. My husband and I brought home a bottle of Blu... More

A visit to the winery is a must. We were allowed to test as many as 5 wines for $5. Then upon a purchase that $5.00 was subtracted from the price of the bottle! Clever idea..very good wines mainly made from seasonal berries etc. of the area. You must go on the walk around the facility, very entertaining, fish pond... More

Stopped in here because there just aren't a lot of wineries in Alaska (especially compared to the number of breweries) and wanted to try some Alaska wine. The people serving the wine could not have been nicer. However, the wine itself was 'meh'. Unfortunately most of the wine is fruit-blended. I'm sure they have their reasons, but I'm just not... More
