Octogenarian George Flynn and his family have grown blueberries on their Pitt Meadows farm for more than 50 years. Almost all of the fruit is sold from their roadside market to loyal repeat customers. They added cranberries in the 1990s.
Flynn was inspired to add a winery to the business after seeing the success of The Fort Wine Co., located nearby. Blue Heron’s early vintages were made by The Fort’s winemakers. In 2006, Richard Flynn, one of George’s sons, took early retirement from a career in civil engineering to take over as Blue Heron’s winemaker. Most of Blue Heron’s wines are now made in-house.
