Bottles, bottles, bottles
In trying to be as good as we can, we source our bottles from TricorBraun Winepak. We buy the Eco series which is lighter and uses recycled glass AND is made in the USA. West Coast even:) We are also kegging our wines with FreshTAP in order to sell them to restaurants so that they stay fresher and we use 26 less bottles per keg!
Spring is an exciting time in the vineyard, who knows what the season will bring!
SouthEnd farm & vineyards
Planted with 5 varietals of grapes that are compatible with our Wet Coast climate, it is always fun and stressful to see how the year is going to be.
Wet Coast Wines
We make all our wines from grapes grown in our farm vineyard and from 2 others on Quadra Island and 1 in the Comox Valley. We like to think of ourselves as a true 50 km winery.
How much do we produce? About 500 cases a year. In some of the big wineries that is one of their special small-lot runs!
Think Globally, act Locally!
We like to source out local vendors, like Okanagan Barrel Works in Oliver for our barrels, Bosa Grape in Burnaby for many winery things, Cellar-Tek in Kelowna for our winery needs. We also try to do as much as we can locally, like hiring Carla Duffey of Lime Soda Photography for photos and Nanci Cook of Firesign Art and Design for website help.
Wines Handcrafted on Quadra Island.
We are a small winery located on beautiful Quadra Island, BC. Real Quadra flavour (or should we say terroire?) We are now closed for the season but you can visit by appointment! read more
