The vineyard was established in 1988 with five acres on a gentle south slope planted to meticulously tended vinifera grape varieties, including Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Auxerrois, Madeleine Sylvaner, Siegerrebe, Schönburger, Ortega and Kerner, all protected from predators (deer, bear, raccoons, rabbits and birds) by specialty fencing and overhead bird netting. Ten more acres are left as a kaleidoscope of forest, creek, pond and wildflowers. A 15 acre parcel of neighbouring land was purchased in 1999 to expand the vineyards. There is clay, heavy in places, over deep limestone and sand, contributing a uniquely intense flavour profile to our wines. All our vines are on their own roots. Our original 5 acres are virus-free and all the vines for the 15 acre expansion were propagated using the latest tissue culture technology to guarantee freedom from a myriad of diseases known to infect grape vines in North America. Vancouver Island remains one of the few phylloxera-free winegrowing regions in the world. We have several viticulture research projects in progress and do not allow anyone to enter the vineyards without us, as precautions must be taken to isolate our site from possible sources of contamination. We ask all visitors to call well in advance so we can arrange to meet them at the house. Read less
