In the heart of Vancouver Island is Blue Grouse Estate Winery, a family-owned Cowichan Valley favourite. In 2012, when Paul Brunner and his family took over the pioneering Blue Grouse Estate Winery on Vancouver Island, they could not have predicted what they would undertake over the next seven years. Investments include major upgrades to the winery and property, going organic, and now, this year, the evolution of Blue Grouse included a label refresh. Sustainably farmed and award-winning, the winery and surrounding vineyards are a sought-after destination, not only for sampling the award-winning portfolio of Estate and Quill branded wines, but also for events, picnics and family adventures. Visit and pass by a pond with birds, tadpoles and beehives in the background as you approach the winery. A bright, airy and sustainably-constructed tasting room opens onto a sun-drenched patio — the perfect spot for charcuterie and a glass of rosé. In winter, much-loved weekend

favourites are “Soup Saturdays” and also the occasional special Sunday brunch. The mezzanine and its’ romantic views make Blue Grouse an essential stop in your Cowichan Valley visit, while the surrounding vineyards offer the perfect setting for weddings and special events.

The estate-grown wines are made by winemaker Bailey Williamson from transitional-organic vineyards, and a second label, Quill, incorporates Island and Okanagan fruit. Varietal wines include Ortega, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, and a traditional method sparkling wine, “Paula”, named after winery owners Paul and Cristina Brunner’s daughter. The wines are bright, crisp, and wellbalanced, showcasing where they are grown. Selling out vintage over vintage, the wines are celebrated with awards and positive critical acclaim.
