100 % locally grown, Ortega Auxerrois is a crisp white wine made with Pinot Auxerrois and Ortega varietals that grow very well on the Saanich Peninsula. The crispness of cool rain, green apple and honeysuckle flowers expand across the palate to reveal a lovely mineral finish that lingers on the palate.
Estate grown grapes from Dragonfly Hill Vineyard
Dragonfly Hill Merlot Cabernet is a collaboration of red grapes and has artful notes of french oak, black cherry and distant vanilla. This wine is made in Saanich and fully aged in oak barrels for one year, then blended in stainless tanks for one year before bottling.
100% locally grown with 10 kinds of berries and fruit from the Saanich Peninsula. Bumbleberry is slightly dry and grasps you with its delicate flavours of blackberries, raspberries, loganberries, black currant; with additional infusions of strawberry, rhubarb, and Japanese plum.
(New release fall 2014)Rusty Truck Pumpkin Wine is a uniquely flavourful autumn classic. An aromatic, pumpkin pie inspired fusion with a slightly sweet taste that sings with incidental notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
This flavorful red wine is a collaboration of Merlot and Labelle, a new Cabernet hybrid meaning "beautiful dragonfly". Distinctly different from our Merlot Cabernet, the Labelle provides a rich fruity flavor and striking purple coloration. Our vineyard is the first in the world to have a significant planting of this exciting new coastal red varietal. Only 40 cases of this unique wine were produced, and thus the very limited quantities are only available for purchase at the winery.
