Cooking Class Schedule

Cooking Classes:

At Hester Creek Estate Winery we offer you the rare experience of interacting with an acclaimed Chef in an intimate setting. You are one of only 14 guests seated at a granite island in a state of the art kitchen. The multi-course menu skillfully pairs delicate and intricate flavours with our award winning wines. Watch as the Chef prepares each course before you and shares little known culinary secrets. Take home the recipes as well as the memory of a truly unique experience.

BBQ Lunches:

Our newest experience! We are pleased to offer BBQ lunches in the private patio every Friday from June 20th-September 26th. This casual 3-course wine-paired lunch will start at noon each Friday. Revervations are recommended.

Music on the Patio:

Every Saturday we welcome local talented artists from all over the valley. This experience is complimentary, join us from 1-4 on any Saturday from June 21st to October 4th and relax on the patio with a glass of wine.
