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.
At Blue Grouse, we really like to eat! Our winemaker has been active in the farm-to-table movement for 20 years and we do what we can to support the efforts of local food producers.
We offer locally made cheese and charcuterie boards daily or bring your own snacks and gather in our licensed outdoor picnic area with some perfectly matched Blue Grouse wines.
Bring your covey of friends to visit Blue Grouse! We encourage reservations for groups of six or more, so we can ensure that we have a member of our knowledgeable staff dedicated to guiding your party through a tasting of our award-winning wines.
