Blue Grouse Vineyards

Blue Grouse Vineyards Located on Blue Grouse Road in a country forest setting; established in 1989 they feature a red wine made from Black Muscat. Dr. Hans H Kiltz Winemaker states "Accepting the challenge to be a vintner on Vancouver Island requires making a commitment. To Blue Grouse this means that the character of our wines must reflect this unique location and complement the regional cuisine of the West Coast in the best possible way." The soil at Blue Grouse Vineyards is mainly a mixture of clay and sand, however there are also areas of gravelly soil. The winery grows only VitisVinifera, the real wine grapes introduced from Europe which are primarily cool climate varieties such as Bacchus Ortega, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Müller-Thurgau.

Blue Grouse is located 45 Km North of Victoria or 7 Km south of Duncan, just 1 Km west of the Highway. When traveling from Victoria, turn left on Koksilah Rd. Then immediately left again on Hillbank Rd., right at the stop sign on Lakeside Rd. You will find us at the end of Blue Grouse Rd, the second road on your left. Look out for wine route signs.

  Bacchus 2005
A true reflection of the warm and sunny summer of 2005. Another relative of the Riesling, this white wine is fruity and refreshing. Great for sipping or to match seafood and chicken dishes.
  Black Muscat 2003
A Blue Grouse exclusive. This unique variety is deep red in color and has powerful aromas of lychee and cassis. Slightly off dry, Black Muscat serves as a delicious sipping or after dinner wine and is wonderful with any rich cheeses or chocolate dessert.
  Gamay Noir 2001
Gamay Noir was first grown and produced on Vancouver Island by Blue Grouse Winery in 1992. This is a light-bodied red Beaujoulais with fresh acidity and full of fruit, showing off strong aromas of plum and cherry. A crisp summertime red to enjoy with salmon and pastas!
  Müller-Thurgau 2005
This popular German variety is dry, lean and crisp with aromas of pear and apple. Great partner for shellfish and white fish such as halibut!
  Ortega 2005
Vancouver Island staple grape variety! This cool-climate grape is well balanced: dry yet fruity with exotic aromas of peaches and apricots. A very popular variety at Blue Grouse, Ortega makes for a very versatile food wine!
  Pinot Gris 2005
An award-winning wine in Oregon for eight years running, Pinot Gris is rich and full-bodied. It has flavors of tropical fruit and is a perfect dinner wine for salmon, turkey or pork.
  Pinot Noir 2003
An exemplary Pinot Noir. Gold and Silver medal winner in Oregon. It has striking aromas of black cherry and spice. Aged in fine French Oak for one year, it finishes dry and smooth with a uniquely silken texture. Pairs with steak, duck, lamb, game and salmon.
  Siegerrebe 2005
This seductive white is related to Gewurztraminer and Riesling. It is exceptionally aromatic with flavours of Muscat and ripe peaches. Recommended with Asian-style dishes and seafood.
