Gulf Islands Wineries - pender island
You are invited to visit our tasting room and savour the wines our skilled and passionate winemaker Ian Baker has carefully crafted for your enjoyment. Taste for yourself wines that have earned Sea Star Vineyards recognition as one of only 8 B.C. “Wineries of Distinction” by the 2014 Northwest Wine Summit. Sea Star wines are featured on the wine lists of many of the best restaurants and resorts in British Columbia. We are proud that 90% of the grapes used to make our wines are grown here on Pender Island. We believe the 26 acre property is one of the most beautiful winery properties in British Columbia. Our upper vineyard beside the Winery terraces up to Mount Menzies and the lower vineyard cascades down to the beach. The Winery building was designed by Walter Francl and is a great venue for numerous Art Exhibitions and musical events. In our licenced picnic area we host the Wednesday Winery Market, and the very popular "Cafe at Large" situated adjacent to the garden patio and spacious lawn. Our Babydoll Southdown sheep are a popular attraction – the friendliest, best looking and most environmentally conscientious “lawn mowers” you’ll ever met. They are small stature sheep, generally not more than 24” tall, and well-suited to vineyard and orchard grass and weed control. You can’t get much more organic and sustainable than this ! Hudson is our “Platinum Retriever“ who will welcome you when you arrive. He takes his responsibility as official “Greeter” very seriously. We all look forward to meeting you on your visit to Sea Star Vineyards!
