Luke, the owner, and his family is so passionate about the wine-making. The wines are well balanced and thoughtful. We had a great time.
Had a great experience, the tasting there is amazing, 5 estate wines to taste that have very unique flavor and the taster was incredibly nice and explained a lot of the wine culture to us. Definetly recommend :) Thank you!
We had not been to this winery before. Our loss. The staff are great and the wine is superb. They make amazing Pinot noir wines. The outside patio is very nice to either sit or stand and enjoy the surroundings. We will be back.

We take pride in growing our vines and crafting small lots of remarkable wines. We honour the authenticity of Old World Burgundy varietals and apply innovative, New World techniques to optimize the quality of our winemaking.

The story behind the name
Where did our name, Howling Bluff, come from? The name came about from a beautiful early spring morning, the moon still in the sky and our dogs howling away on the bluff by the winery. The scene, the occasion, and the moment just seemed too perfect. Thus Howling Bluff winery, and the stylized logo with our beloved dog Summa, was born. Our talented artist neighbour, Johann Wessels, created the stylized logo and the other stunning artwork you’ll see at the winery.
We also get many questions about the name of our vineyard, Three Mile Creek vineyard. Three Mile creek runs under our Century Block pinot noir vines, and under the road now called Three Mile Road.
