This winery is on the way from the ferry terminal to downtown Salt Spring Island, so I decided to stop by. I enjoyed the wine tasting very much. It has somewhat a formal classy ambience in the tasting room.

We hit this vineyard with no expectations. Thoroughly enjoyed each tasting. Walked out with 4 bottles. The apple and pear trees were a special treat as well.

Loved the red wine (blend) and white. I wished they had available all their wines for tasting...I wonder if we go back, if there will be other wines available to try? The ladies doing the tasting were knowledgeable, however, seemed less than enthusiastic.

Estate winery so you get to drink what is grown right there. Much more mature flavours than the other SSI wineries and professional staff. Now it can't challenge the best of the Okanagon but it stands against many of them. Only negative is their pinot...More
