Winery Tour Gulf Islands

There are 5 wineries on the Gulf Islands which are easily accessed by boat. One of the private charter options is to visit several of these wineries on a day excursion, or simply choose one as part of any one of our customized private Marine EcoTours. Below is a list of these wineries for you to choose from.

Sea Star Vineyard & Estate Winery

6621 Harbour Hills Dr
Pender Islands, British Columbia V0N 2M1
Phone: 250-629-6960
http://seastarvineyards.ca

Tour Sea Star’s terraced vineyard and winery on the rocky south flank of Mount Menzies on North Pender Island in the sparkling southern Gulf Islands of BC. In the lee of rainshadows projected by both the 12,000-foot Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island, Pender basks in a glorious mediterranean summer, with long stretches of dry, sunny weather.

On your wine tour you’ll see how, over an eight month season, with hand-tending and careful applications of water and nutrients, winegrapes ripen slowly and develop complex flavours. Hand-picked in late fall, grapes retain crisp aromatics while developing long, elegant flavours.

60 acres of vineyards nestled between the Pacific ocean and a massive sandstone and granite cliff face Saturna Island Vineyards is ideal for the cultivation of classic European grape varietals. Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gewrztraminer, Pinot Noir and Merlot under vine. Our summers are warm and our winters are mild; the ideal conditions for a long growing season. Excellent Bistro on location.

Saturna Island Vineyards, in conjunction with the Ministry of Environment and the Islands Trust, is committed to ensuring that their enterprise does not threaten the survival of the Peregrine Falcons who nest in a cave atop the huge cliff that overlooks the vineyards. In an agreement with the Nature Conservancy of Canada they have dedicated a buffer zone between the vineyards and nesting site.

Saturna is the second largest and least populated Gulf Island.
