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...More

They have some really good wines! A sign on the wall says you need to taste the wines naked but everyone there was clothed. Friendly staff! Nice tasting room. Fairly priced wines. Tasting fees waived when you buy the wines.

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.

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.

Enjoyed our visit to the winery. The sheep in the parking lot were cute. The wines were terrific. The folks there were terrific. We tasted 3 wines and really liked Gewürztraminer.

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
