40 Knots vineyard & estate winery
Join Us in Our Tasting Room
Experience Old World Traditional - New World Bold wines. 40 Knots is one of the largest wineries on Vancouver Island, farming sustainably and using the best practices from organics, biodynamic and plant-based practices, on 24 stunning acres. We craft wines distinctly shaped by the ocean breeze and sun-soaked climate. Nestled with a view of the glacier and adjacent to the Salish Sea, enjoy our Cellar Tasting Lounge, Balcony, Vineyard Terrace, and stroll in our vineyard. Families and dogs are welcome!
Established in 2005, we grow noble varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gris, and Gamay, as well as common hybrids such as Auxerrois, Sieg, and Schönberger.
There is something very special about our land here. Just stepping foot onto the property, you can feel it even if you can't explain it. Our glacier till soil, adjacent to the Salish Sea, makes us indeed a rarity. Can you taste the difference in our wine? Indeed you can, but we will let you be the judge of that. Come take a stroll through our interpretive trail and learn about how we grow. It is a wonderful walk any day of the year. If you listen carefully you can hear the sea lions playing, the swallow that adorn are label are soaring above you, and it is quiet enough to hear the lady bugs having a sip of wine.
