Sip, Savour and Stay at
A 2nd Generation Family Winery offering Tasting Bar,
Restaurant with Scenic Patio, Artisan Bakery, and
Guesthouse in the beautiful Similkameen Valley
Crowsnest Vineyards was purchased by the Heinecke family in 1985 when the Winery, Restaurant and Guesthouse were launched.
Named after the Crowsnest Highway #3, the family was an early contributor to the development of the Similkameen wine region and the wine and food has continuously evolved over the years. Siblings, Sascha and Anna Heinecke were instrumental in the evolution of the business and with the retirement of their parents, took over leadership in 2018 with a bold new vision.
The vision is built on the bounty of the region…the opportunity to express the spectacular local terroir from which we craft our wines and from which grows amazing, fresh ingredients included in our menus, pantry and bakery. We serve this bounty in a relaxed environment at our tasting bar, in our restaurant and on the view patio.
Often paired with live music, Crowsnest Vineyards has become a gathering spot for locals during the hot summer days and evening, a celebration of sorts, creating a sense of community. The authenticity of the experience is now attracting visitors to the region who also enjoy time with quality wines, and local and locally inspired food served with attentiveness in the beautiful Similkameen Valley. Our mission is to support, serve and share local.
Affordable without compromise the team offers guests and visitors an opportunity to stay a little longer, escape busy lives and unwind while you sip, savour and stay at Crowsnest Vineyards.

Stone oven Artisan Sourdough
Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.” – James Beard
Artisan techniques, a specialized stone over, and slow cold ferment creates the crust and texture that is baked in goodness. And,
Warning – this is bread you will crave!
The bakery also is well known for other goodies including sausage and vegetarian rolls, croissants, pastries, and European holiday breads.
