SouthEnd Winery

We make a variety of wines,  red, white and fun from grapes grown here on the Farm as well a small amount from the Comox Valley.  We keep it small and local in accordance with our principles.  We use a minimal amount of sulphites and our vineyard is grown organically with no pesticides or herbicides.

Red

2018 Quintage 

12.3%  2018 Leon Millot and Marechal Foch and , barrel aged for 12 months and blended with steel aged 2018 Marechal Foch and Leon Millot, this is a lovely lighter bodied red wine perfect for serving with red meats, pizza, sushi, what have you. Grown here on the Farm and in the Comox Valley.

2018 Principles

13.5% 2018 Cabernet Franc from the Osoyoos area, barrel aged for 12 months and blended back with steel aged 2018 Cabernet Franc.  This is a bigger red than what we can grow here on the Island.

ClearCut Distilling Co.

Our newest idea, ClearCut Distilling Company takes the wine we’ve made at the Winery and distills it into some fun spirits.  

Botanically Incorrect Gin

38.5%  This is a true farm grown spirit.  We handcraft our spirits in small batches from the wine grown and made at our Winery and the botanicals are foraged and grown on the Farm.   As botanicals change with the seasons so goes the gin.  This is not your traditional gin but it’s Botanically Incorrect!

$25.00  excluding taxes and bottle deposit – 375 ml bottle

Brandy 319 

40%  This brandy is distilled once to preserve the flavours of the base wine that was grown and fermented on the Farm and then bulk aged in glass demi-johns with medium toast American Oak.  

$25.00  excluding taxes and bottle deposit – 375 ml bottle

SouthEnd Chicken and The Shack

In addition to the winery (because we’re not busy enough) we run a small pastured meat chicken farm from May to October with birds raised in small flocks as well as The Shack Vacation Rental which you can either book here or email us directly if you are interested in staying on the farm.

Chicken

We raise small flocks at a time and they are treated with respect and love until we harvest them.  We are VIHA licensed (E License) and we are able to slaughter them ourselves rather than subject them to additional stress by taking them to an abattoir.

We started doing this because we wanted to provide wholesome food for our 2 girls and we wanted them to understand where their food originates. We are only able to sell directly from the farm, we sell out quickly so if interested please call us at 250-285-2257 to reserve your birds.

The Shack at SouthEnd Farm

We’ve built a charming (in our humble opinion) tiny house that has its own entrance and patio with a separate toilet room accessed from the patio. There is a kitchen that is fully stocked with vintage Le Creuset cast iron pots and a propane cooktop. The queen bed is in the loft of the living area and the living area has a cozy couch for curling up and reading on as well as a propane fireplace for heat and ambiance.

You have your own little patio with an outdoor table and fire pit. There’s a BBQ and you have your own driveway. Our house is right beside the Shack so you may see us going to the chicken coop or wandering around the yard gardening etc. We’re around so will be able to clarify when you arrive at the farm.
