Initially, John Harper recommended the types suitable for our site and he supplied our first stock. Subsequently, the centre for plant health in Saanichton, Euro Nursery and Don Allen have supplied the remainder of the 38 or so varieties planted.
We thought it was necessary to plant so many varieties to establish exactly which varieties would mature most successfully in the Alberni Valley. Neither the vineyard nor the winery would have been possible without the help of many friends and relations who gave unselfishly of their time and effort to help with the clearing, planting, pruning and harvesting.
