Pender and Saturna Islands

Pender and Saturna Islands are jewels in the Southern Gulf Islands surrounded by the Salish Sea, home to Sea Star Vineyards on both islands. Our seaside vineyards cascades all the way down to the beaches, while our upper vineyards neighbour Gulf Islands National Park Reserves including Mount Menzies on Pender Island and Mount Warburton Pike on Saturna Island.

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 .

Our Seaside Vineyard

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.
