One of the oldest Estate Wineries in British Columbia, nestled on a 65-acre piece of unspoiled Cowichan Valley countryside, this family owned winery and vineyard produces some of the most awarded wines on Vancouver Island.The Blue Grouse Estate Winery’s philosophy evolves from the concept of “stewardship”, where their aim is to leave everything they touch better than when they found it. This belief is applied to training their team of employees, the environment that hosts their vineyard and home, the vines they grow, the wines they make, the infrastructure which supports the winery and vineyard, and the economics of their business model – everything. Awarded Winery & Vineyard of the Year 2017 by Luxury Travel Guide, Blue Grouse Estate Winery with its purpose-built vineyard have an incredible history that teaches us a lot about what the soils and climate on Vancouver Island could deliver in wines.
Farming a 120-acre estate of pristine British Columbian vineyards, Church & State Wines continually push the limits of their terroir and regions. They strive to produce wines that over-deliver, and the results speak for themselves: the winery has been named producer of Canada’s Best Red Wine eight times since 2009, and has received countless Gold medals, Best in Class awards and National trophies for both red and white wines. By focusing on the unique terroir of their South Okanagan Valley and Vancouver Island vineyards, Church & State Wines continually represent the cutting-edge of what is capable in Canadian viticulture and winemaking.
