de Vine is a family owned and operated Organic Vineyard and Distillery sitting atop a scenic south-facing ridge with views overlooking the San Juan and Gulf Islands. Here our vines are graced with good exposure and a steady ocean breeze. Our soil is shallow clay-loam with plenty of rocks for drainage. Each year, de Vine Vineyards makes approximately 2000 cases, specializing in organically processed wine.

Our whites are gently whole-cluster pressed, and fermented cool and slow to maintain their bright acidity and subtle aromas. On the other hand, our reds are de-stemmed and given a cold soak and frequent punch downs to achieve maximum extraction of flavour and colour.

In the summer of 2015 we launched de Vine Spirits with Vin Gin and New Tom Gin. Grapes, not grain, make our Gin unique. Our base spirit is double distilled from BC wine grapes, including our own estate Pinot Gris and Gruner Veltliner. A third distillation marries the spirit with a dozen organic and wild-gathered botanicals to create a distinctively smooth West Coast Gin. Apart from our Gin, de Vine Spirits release seasonal features such as Summer’s Strawberry Vodka “de Vine Kiss” and Fall’s Barrel Aged Apple Brandy “Pomme”.

Come visit us in the Tasting Room for a flight of five wines or to sip at our Spirits. Selections are chosen daily by our knowledgeable, friendly staff. Meeting guests from the Vancouver Island and from around the world, is without compare the best part of our job. We’re open on weekends through the Winter, please visit our website for updated hours.
