Wineries & Wine Tours

Contributing to the warm glow of life on this tight little island are three businesses with tasting rooms.
One specializes in cold-climate wines. Another makes mead, the so-called "nectar of the Gods." And a third is producing award-winning gin and vodka. All welcome visitors.
Island Spirits Distillery
Island Spirits Distillery specializes in small-batch ultra-premium gin and vodka. Its line of celebrated liquors – both martini-classic and infusions such as the Black Jelly Bean Sichuan Pepper vodka – are bottled under the pHROG label.
Discriminating critics like Jurgen Gothe and the sippers at Vancouver Magazine approve. The pHROG name is a tribute to the alchemical science of distilling and the frogs who chorus outside the company's wood-sided headquarters. Tours and tastings are held in July and August. (4605 Roburn Road near the Community Hall.)

Visit and Experience Island Grown Wines!
There is something special in the air at 40 Knots Vineyard & Estate Winery.
With the Strait of Georgia and the Comox to Powell River ferry just a stone's throw away, the site is alive with sounds of barking sea lions, singing birds, and planes from the neighbouring air force base. An 18 acre pristine vineyard and winery offer a relaxing place for visitors.
Two unique wine portfolios are on offer. The 40 Knots estate-grown wines include a sparkling, table wines, and a fortified wine that are fresh, lively, and aromatic. Two wines are presented under the Stall Speed label, crafted from Okanagan-grown fruit.
40 Knots invite you to visit, taste, and learn what makes Vancouver Island wines so special.
