Thank you Everyone!

Sea Star Vineyards first vintages from 2013 Sold Out in 6 months so we more than doubled production in 2014 to 3,000 cases and we sold out again in our second year.
Our 2015 vintages total 3,800 cases which is our maximum production capacity. They have all been bottled and are now available.

We’d like to thank “The Cafe at Large” for providing great lunches and tapas this summer at the Winery. It was a very popular venue to enjoy some creative offerings by Amanda the chef from The Cafe at Hope Bay while enjoying some wine in our licensed picnic area.

Pender Island

Pender Island is a jewel in the Southern Gulf Islands surrounded by the Salish Sea, home to Sea Star Vineyards. Our seaside vineyard cascades all the way down to the beach, while our upper vineyard terraces up to Mount Menzies part of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.

Our grapes are complemented by another Pender Island vineyard, Clam Bay Farms ensuring our wines are authentically made from locally grown grapes, bestowing their unique nature to the wine .

Unique and Memorable Events

As a stunning Event location, the dramatic Winery building designed by Walter Francl is a great venue, as is the adjacent garden patio and spacious lawn, both of which are licensed picnic areas. Various picturesque viewpoints on the property have hosted musical events such as the Pender Island Jazz Concert, as well as plays, numerous Art Exhibits, literary Events and several community fundraisers.

Inspired by Nature

We welcome our guests to beautiful Pender Island and our new Winery opened in April 2014. We are the only vineyard in British Columbia to reach all the way to the shoreline, an area famous for its colourful sea star population. Our setting naturally led us to name the vineyard “Sea Star” . To further recognize the unique nature of our location, our wine labels feature a series of artist-rendered native Sea Stars.
