Wineries & Wine Tours
Baillie-Grohman’s premium award winning boutique wines are grown, handcrafted and bottled in small lots in the breathtaking Creston Valley in south-eastern British Columbia Canada. It’s exciting to be on the edge in this emerging wine-growing region. We see interesting distinctions in our valley and on our Erickson Bench that are yielding premium wines with a unique Kootenay fingerprint. Our Tasting room is open seasonally starting the first weekend of April through the May long weekend when we open 7 days per week until Thanksgiving. After Thanksgiving we are open weekends until Christmas. Hours are open 11 am to 5 pm. Book ahead for a tour of the winery.
Museums & Heritage Sites
We tell great stories. We can explain how Creston got its wacky time zone. We can tell you about the steamship that became a tractor (sort of), the first airplane to land in Creston, and the teacher who refused to be fired. Speaking of “great” stories, there’s “The Great Railway Race” and the “Great Creston Bank Robbery.” And have you heard the one about the imaginary student in Grade Thirteen? Really, we’re not making this up. Why would we? Truth is so much better than fiction. We can even help you tell the greatest story of all: your own. So come on in. After all, there’s no time like the present to discover the past.
