Salt Spring Vineyards
There are a few excellent reasons to visit this jewel. First, for the oenophile, Paul Troop, the winemaker, is an industry expert with profound knowledge and apprehension of all aspects of vineyard production and winery development. He is responsible for bringing the Blattner varietals to Canada. Second, he handcrafts fantastic wines from 100% sustainably farmed Gulf Island grapes. And third, this stunning destination winery offers tastings, picnic accoutrements (think locally made breads, cheeses, tapenades and smoked salmon), live music and memories of a glorious Gulf Island experience.
