Cool climate wines grown and produced on Vancouver Island, in Nanaimo, the harbour city. A 5 min drive from Departure Bay ferry. With the Pacific Coast less than 6 miles away. A maritime influence results in wines with bright acidity, gentle fruit and minerality.
6 acres are planted on the estate farm, where we grow small blocks of Ortega, Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir. The vines were planted in 2001. Our Syrah and Cabernet Franc come from a vineyard in the South Okanagan .
The winery opened its doors in 2009, in our post and beam building that was built from the ground up. The wine shop is on the main floor adjacent to our production facility, and it welcomes you with a large patio area for those beautiful summer days where we welcome everyone with live music on weekends A comfortable gathering place for you to enjoy views of the vineyard, and sit by the fire pit. Families will want to stay and play.
We also have free run chickens that are on the farm, a delight for animal lovers of all ages.
