We had a good tasting of all of the different wines that they sell. Some really nice ones for both the whites and the reds. The cherry wine they have is also quite refreshing. Check it out.

Highly recommend the white Pinot Gris and red Marachell Foch. Beautiful tasting bar, outdoor patio and huge stone wood fireplace for a rainy day

Thank you very much for recommending our winery to visitors of our beautiful Creston Valley. Mention of our big fieldstone fireplace, which creates such a cozy and inviting indoor atmosphere on chillier days, is especially appreciated. While the sunny summer days on our wraparound deck are how most guests experience their visit here it's great for them to know how pleasant an indoor lunch can also be, with it's own unique ambiance. Thanks again!

This place is amazing! The owners are wonderful and friendly, and the wine is fabulous. I go with my family every year, and sit outside on the patio, sip wine and look at the gorgeous scenery. The only downside is that sometimes there are limited vegegarian options, so keep that in mind if you aren't a meat eater.

Thank you for visiting us every year and taking the time to let others on Tripadvisor know about your experiences here. While our summer Bistro's lunch menu is not very large we always feature one vegetatian main dish and, whenever possible, our chef will adapt menu items to suit our guests' dietary requirements. Thank you for your continued support - we appreciate your positive feedback very much.

The service is good, views are beautiful and food is great. The complementary wine tasting is always enjoyable. You will want to take a friend and spend the afternoon there!

My husband and I have the Bison Spirit B&B in Creston and we either accompany our guests, or direct our guests to this winery each summer season. Our guests always tell us how much they enjoy the winery with its' picturesque setting, the superb food, and the fun wine tasting. We refer to this business with confidence, knowing our guests will be well looked after.
