Pender Island

Pender Island is an oasis 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 beaches, while our upper vineyards neighbour Gulf Islands National Park Reserve named Mount Menzies.

For the last 7 years our grapes have been 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

Inspired by Nature

We welcome our guests to beautiful Pender Island and our Winery which opened in April 2014. Our terroir features the only vineyards 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.
