Tasting & Tours

Tasting Room

Family-owned, sustainably-farmed and award-winning, Blue Grouse Estate Winery welcomes you.

Our architect found inspiration for the design of our Tasting Room from the shape of our namesake, the Blue Grouse. The lovely curve of the grouse’s head and neck inspired the roofline and inside a curved ceiling reminds visitors of a grouse’s belly. The entrance highlights a beautiful shade of blue from the grouse’s tail feathers. In addition, the use of British Columbia and Vancouver Island products, including the beams and locally quarried stone, a closed loop water system and geothermal energy ensured we were accountable to Mother Nature.
