Commit a taste to memory

We are home of one of the largest wine regions in BC and have the longest history of winemaking with grapes on the island, with our first commercial winery opening in 1992, but some of our homesteads date back to the 1800s. 

Beyond the glass itself, it’s the experience around the sip—whether we’re after sparkling holiday lights and mulled wine or fresh veggies and a crisp white on a patio, many of our vineyards are open beyond just the summer season. Then there’s the setting—from heritage buildings to chateau-style estates with some not only offering tastings and tours, but restaurants, accommodation, and wedding or event spaces too.
