Tourists: if you are walking or cycling the Quay from east to west, and want a quick sip before your return, look for this funky little wine bar tucked in behind Steel & Oak, which is highly visible from the overpass.
Locals: Enjoy, as I did, the opportunity to by good quality wine from a local small business. I was especially appreciative of their offer to sign me up for their "wine club", even though I'm not a big spender - saved me a few $$$ without even asking! Nice touch, people.

This is a family run local winery, and they are always trying to make the experience a great one. We are part of their wine club, and the wines are delicious. They managed to keep going through the pandemic, and have come out of it even better. Besides buying bottles to go, they now have a lounge area where you can sit and enjoy wine & snacks. Currently, they have mulled wine - yummy! We also ordered a charcuterie box and enjoyed that as well. It may be hard to find, but is worth it!

Haven't been here for quite some time, but some of my friends who enjoy wine like nothing better than a bottle from here. So, dropped by to get purchase a birthday present. Friendly staff, fast service.
Tourists walking the Quay or locals wishing to support businesses that pay taxes in your area should pay at least one visit to this little place just behind Steel & Oak.

This little winery doesn't have grape of its own. Most of the wines are quite "young" and are done in small batches. Their wines are very easy drinking wines that will pair well with finger food.
I really enjoyed their wine club which they offer seasonal tasting of their new wines. It's easy to join by just ordering 2 bottles of wine every 4 months and you get to have a little get-together wine tasting night with cheese and meat platter.

Tourists and locals alike could be interested in this destination. About five minutes west of the boardwalk in New Westminster, this would be a great place to stop, catch one's breath after a walk/bike/hike from the eastern end of the walkway. $5 for some samples, but buy a bottle and the samples are FREE. Locals - support a local business before you go back to your car (or better, get on the local bus).

Small friendly well-informed local winery that brings in grapes from elsewhere to mash and ferment into yumminess...decent product at decent prices, worth checking out!

I've been going to Pacific Breeze for around a decade but haven't been for several years. First of all, it is a purely a winery (can't remember what the French term is) as they do not grow any grapes. Instead, PB buys grapes (usually from California but also Oregon and Washington, and more recently from the Okanagan) from, they say, contract growers who also grow and sell to the big-name wineries.

As such they can get better grapes without the investment in vineyard and vineyard operations (some estate wineries cry foul as they have to make something with what they have instead of buying the best, or nearly the best).

On that note, the winery is in the middle of a small industrial estate sandwiched between rail tracks and a busy road. Not bad for where it is though.

That said, the wines are generally good. Big, fruity wines with high alcohol level if that is the style you are after. Prices are pretty good for what you get too.

In the past, I like their Gargiste and GSM wines (both not currently offered). Today, we tried a California Sauvignon blanc. Very different from the usual, with a bit of an after taste that I can't pin down. Not great but pretty good value for the price ($14 w/o tax). Next was a southern Okanagan Merlot. Great bouquet, with very strong vanilla (French oakey) but just not impressive on the tongue. Maybe a Bordeaux glass would have helped (they use Riedel glasses but nothing varietal-specific).
Last wine offered was a Grenache. Not much bouquet on the nose but the taste was pretty good. Maybe better if it was blended but alas, only a single varietal. $30 price is a bit steep.

If you do buy something do yourself a favour and get the specific varietal glass - it makes a difference. Or buy yourself some and bring them down to try.

Our group of four attended a paid group wine "tour" on the weekend.

All four of us ( all europeans) found the verbal presentation good, but the wines tasted were "young". The presenter told us how the wine would be more palatable in four to seven years ( then why not sample a wine that was not obviously so "fresh") Accordingly we did not care for the wines sampled on the tour.

We were also disappointed that the wines were poured while glass in hand, and that there was no change of the glass between the white we started with, to the red that followed. At least the glasses could have been primed so there was no mixture of taste. Not what I would expect from a winery.

Much of the presentation was related to other wines that have been produced in past years, available for sale of course...

This came across more as a sales opportunity for the winery to upsell, while sampling wines that were not ready or impressive.

This nondescript "garage" winery produces small batches with grapes from vineyards in Washington & California. The wine is really good with many award-winners!! We went to a private tasting a few years ago & enjoyed their wines so much that we became members of their wine club. They are open every day, so it's easy to drop in & taste several wines. The staff are very knowledgeable & fun, often you can talk to the winemaker. If you want more, they offer a 45 minute guided tour of the winery & barrel room, along with explanations & tastings of several wines for $15 per person.

A small wine outlet that provides a 'club' atmosphere to get regular bottles of wine cheaper than just dropping in.
