We are THRILLED to announce that our Winemaker Ian Baker won our first National award with the highest honour “Best in Show” at the Gold Medal Plates – Canadian Culinary Championships:

“…. the winner is Sea Star 2015 Blanc de Noir Rose. The judges were totally impressed with the purity, balance and liveliness of this tender pink wine, made from organically grown pinot noir from tiny Pender Island. The price is about $20, but forget about acquiring a bottle. It sold out long ago”.

While it is true that the winery is sold out, guests to these excellent restaurants can find a bottle on their wine lists;
