“Excellent Wine!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

I was first introduced to Bear Creek wines when I found a bottle of their Black Raspberry blend at a friend's and tried some. It was the first time drinking any wine where I instantly wanted to drink a whole bottle of it by myself, without sharing. (before then I didn't really enjoy drinking because I hadn't found anything I liked) This past weekend, my sister in law and I popped in at Bear Creek Winery and did some tasting. It was awesome! We both got to try 2 oz samples of 6 different wines. (you get to choose which wines you try) My favorites were the Peach Apricot, one of Bear Creek's seasonal summer wines, and the Pomegranate. Both were insanely delicious! (and for $15 a bottle, not horribly expensive) The wine tasting costs $5 per person, but then is credited towards your purchase of a bottle of wine. I definitely plan to return,

We are glad that you had such a great time in our tasting room. The motivation for making our wines is to see them enjoyed so your comments are greatly appreciated. I will keep making them if you keep enjoying them.

Cheers,

My wife and I visited the winery on the Homer Fermentation Tour - it was definitely the best stop. They have a large selection of wines to try, we had little snacks and the wines were GREAT! While not the cheapest wine, it was well worth the price. If I'm ever in Homer again, I'll definitely return - and I'm not really a wine drinker!

We didn't stay at the lodge.

Located a few miles away from Homer, we spent two nights in Bear Creek Lodging during our honey moon trip in Alaska.

The team, very nice, made themselves available to make our stay perfect. Our room was very spacious and nice, with a wonderful view on the landscape...and mooses ! The hot tub is a must in the evening to enjoy the sunset...This place is also well know for wine, do not hesitate to taste the Strawberry Rhubarb !

We definitely had a wonderful time there and recommend this place if you want to enjoy a few days in Homer.

We were looking for a place to stay in Homer, and were originally looking at a few of the larger B&B's. We were there for an anniversary so decided that the winery met our privacy needs a bit better than the others.
There are only 2 units, but the room was plenty big enough and nice enough for us. We loved the hot tub, but didn't get a chance to use the Sauna. We wished that we could have been there later in the season when the flowers were out, but the hosts were great and the setting peaceful and romantic - even with one other rental right next door.
The wine is pretty good (excellent by Alaska-made standards), albeit a bit expensive, and their breakfast voucher system was appreciated much more than the muffins and juice that most B&Bs offer.
We'll be back, but would probably aim away from the summer season to avoid the high peak rates (not much higher than other places when you consider the free breakfast vouchers).
Our only complaint is the $50 charge for late check in - with only 2 units and the owners being right on site there shouldn't be a charge for arriving after 6 and before 10 PM - an envelope with a key and instructions (rules) would have been fine too.

Classy and clean. Great decor and hot tub. Very nice layout and great staff! I would stay again but with husband next time! Wine tasting room clean and cozy. Room was cozy and comfy. I enjoyed the coffee in morning. The landscaping was nice even in between seasons. I like the fact there were no kids but it was a very playful atmosphere.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our suites are best suited for the couples get-away and it sounds like you took advantage of that. We hope you can visit us again, maybe when the gardens are in full bloom.

My husband and I live in Ketchikan, Alaska and we were wanting to try a new wine and we seen this wine at one of our local stores. First we tried the Strawberry Rhubarb; so yummy. Then we tried the Wild Berry; even better! We would love to visit the winery one day, but until then we always recommend this wine to our guests and visitors in Alaska. We can't wait to taste the other wines they have!

We stayed at the Bear Creek Winery in the winter and really enjoyed our stay. The owners were very helpful and accomodating, even firing up the steam room for us (we prefer the steam to the hot tub). A bottle of wine (in this case house berry wine) comes with the room, which was very tasty (a sweet wine). The room was comfortable, had some kitchen ammeneties, a comfortable bed, and cable TV. We plan to stay here again on our next trip to Homer.
