We were greeted right away. I think it was the owner that take care of our tasting. He was very friendly, we really had a good time chatting with him. He explained us a lot of things about his winery and wines in the valley. It is a small family winery but we really liked most of their wines. Their... More

It was end of a long day that we visited Howling Bluff. I was looking for a good Pinot to have with dinner and had been disappointed with many of the wines I had tasted earlier in the day. Another winery suggested stopping at Howling Bluff which was not at all on our radar. A small unassuming place which is... More

I wouldn't normally review a winery but this one stood out. We spent a bunch of extra time with the son of the owner as he walked us through the growing and maintenance process. It was time he did not have to spend and we were grateful for the extra attention as we learned a lot about the wine making.... More

Hi folks, thanks for dropping by. To borrow a very over used phrase; planting grapes, growing them, making wine, having folks like it great! Having someone tell you your son is doing a great job; Priceless! Please drop by next again. Thank you Luke More

I wasn't sure what to expect as I approached the unassuming winery but the greeting by the owner's dogs and the owner himself made me feel right at home. It was right before closing but the staff member there was so friendly and offered us a tasting with lots of information and stories about each of the wines. I was... More

On a winery tour in Naramata my friend and I encountered this little gem of a winery: an awesome surprise. The winery is cute and the scenery is breathtaking. All the wines were absolutely amazing, even the one "with a story" - process went wrong and the owner wasn't happy about that particular wine! But they told us the story... More
