“What a Disappointment!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

After checking their website which looked very appealing with a selection of wine and tempting food, we drove out from Osoyoos only to find it was all closed up, despite the "open" sign.
I understand it is still the quiet season, but surely a "closed" sign at the turn off from the highway would save disappointment and frustration......Why?

“this area is one of the hidden jems of BC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

What a pleasant surprise to visit this area of BC. Not only is it beautiful but it is the home of so many food producers and beverage producers, many of them are going organic and natural. Orchards, produce, honey and of course, WINE!
It is so pleasant to stay at the Crowsnest Vineyard and Landgasthaus. It is a German experience but in a much better place. This family run vineyard has it all, some good wines, lovely accommodation and first class food. Our room was perfect for us, 3 beds, no sharing necessary. it was clean and we had all we needed. It's easy to while away an afternoon on the deck with wine or beer and maybe an appie and just as nice to take a stroll through the vineyards and orchards. The evening menu was small and felt a little heavy to me, real German fare. I did enjoy my chicken confit though. The chef knows what he is doing.
Maybe the wine might need a bit more experience but it is well on the way to being top notch.
Just one note to the owners....if a pinot noir is cloudy it's probably sour and not fit to be served to guests.

“A bit of Germany in the Similkameen Valley”

Stay at a vineyard in B.C.'s beautiful Similkameen Valley. Price includes breakfast. Restaurant on premises serves classic German dishes. Try the delicious dry apple cider.
