The small estate winery has some exceptionally great wine. In addition, the proprietor is extremely kind, knowledgeable and offers great service. We will definitely return in our next trip to BC. In the meantime, we will be ordering from this amazing winery.

Stopped at this winery on a trip to Salt Spring. Beautiful location. $5 tasting fee. I liked the gewurztraminer, however it was citrusy. The Pinot noir was also nice! Worth a stop and taste.

My husband, myself, and my 10 month old went on a rainy afternoon. It was very nice and the woman working there was extremely knowledgeable. She even tried to feed the ducks so our daughter could see them. We bought two bottles from them. Happy to support such a great local business. They have food as well but we didn’t have any. Great place!!!

My friends and I, all averaging around the age of 30, walked in to the winery anticipating to spend money on wine and were greeted with the following statement " it will be 10 minutes- so if you kids just want to wait oh and here is a paper on our wines. There will be a test". Not funny, not welcoming and immediately turned everyone off. For one, not kids. 2, not even saying welcome and belittling us in front of other patrons- business lost. We left and went to salt spring wild cider and spent a few hundred dollars. Unfortunate that just because we look young we were treated like kids. Choose your words more wisely, and maybe you'll have more business

It’s hard to say if I disliked the vineyard and the actual wines or the server coloured my opinion. She was a young girl, inappropriately dressed and had an extreme air of disinterest. Would not recommend.

My hubby and I stopped there on our tour of the island and we were treated to the actual owner serving us our wine during the tastings. She was really great! She is a very modest woman who takes great pride in her work. We quite enjoyed speaking with her and of course purchased some wine from her great winery!

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.

On a daly visit, we popped in a tried the wines here. Again, the standard is fantastic. Bought a Pinot Grigio which was only produced in 2015. Lovely Italian style. Great staff.
