The genesis of this winery was Gord Graziano’s backyard vineyard growing cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. It was planted as a personal therapy project when Graziano, a long-time home winemaker, was recovering from a 1998 heart attack and stroke.
He planted varieties he enjoys, even if they struggle to ripen on Vancouver Island. In 2008, he teamed up with Connie and Alwin Dyrland, owners of a commercial berry farm, to launch a winery producing both red wines and sparkling fruit wines.
