With a focus on sustainable farming and grape varietals suited to this cool coastal climate, boutique wineries here (including one owned by Titanic director James Cameron) excel at crisp, aromatic wines.
40 Knots Estate Winery
One of the closest vineyards in the world to an ocean offers its Vineyard Terrace restaurant with popular Wine Wednesdays and live music, tours and tastings year-round (closed Mondays).
Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery
Owned by the legendary film director, James Cameron, Beaufort Vineyard may have Hollywood connections but is pure to its island roots.

A little different from the rest in the Comox Valley, Blue Moon focuses on producing fruit wines and ciders thanks to its abundant organic berry farm.

Coastal Black Winery has been serving up award-winning fruit wines, ciders, and mead since 2009. They even produce their own honey on-site!
