Blue Grouse is a family-owned and operated vineyard and winery established as one of the founding Estates wineries of Vancouver Island.
Since 1993, their elegant wood-paneled wine shop and tasting room has been welcoming visitors to taste and purchase the wines that have been grown and produced on this land.
Once the preferred habitat of blue grouse, the 31 acres of Blue Grouse Vineyards is tucked away on the sunniest slope of Vancouver Island's Cowichan Valley. The terroir encompasses wind protection by evergreen trees, an all-southern exposure, a combination of clay and gravely soil, and the nurturing pure air and spring water. Thanks to this exceptional site, the vines require neither fertilization nor irrigation, just a drop of passion, a splash of dedication and hard work and a pinch of obsession!
At Blue Grouse, wine quality is attained through infinite small steps taken with precision and pride. The vines are hand-pruned, the grapes are hand-harvested, and the true and healthy varietal wines capture the essence of the vineyards' climate and soil.
