Creston's mild and growing-friendly climate is supporting an expanding winery industry.

Creston's newest winery is now marketing and selling their first vintage. Red Bird Estate Winery is owned and operated by Shannon and Remi Cardinal. The estate winery is located at 1046 Lamont Road in Creston.

"2018 marks the first vintage release year for Red Bird," said Remi Cardinal.  "We are thrilled to offer three varieties of wine for enjoyment — Gewurztraminer; Meritage and Pinot Gris."

The Gewurztraminer features grapes grown at the couple's 3-acre Cardinal Vineyards in the Creston Valley and the other two wines come from grapes from the Okanagan Valley. Red Bird Estate Winery joins three other established wineries in the Creston area — Skimmerhorn Winery & Vineyard, Baillie-Grohman Estate Winery and Wynnwood Cellars Estate Winery.

Watch for them at local farmers markets around the Kootenays this summer.
