Cherry Point Vineyard

Cherry Point Vineyard Cherry point was purchased in 2003 by the Cowichan Tribes making it the second winery owned by First Nations. Cherry Point Vineyards was established in 1990, and was licensed as a farm winery in 1994. Situated on a gravelly glacial deposit in the Cowichan valley, our terroir has been compared to the best of the Alsace and Chablis locations. Owners Wayne and Helena Ulrich have a unique picturesque spot for their vineyard near Cobble Hill. The winery has produced a 2000 Reserve Agria. Agria is an early ripening red grape that has been developed on the Island. A number of government research projects are carried out at Cherry Point to find the best grapes for the Island.

  Agria/Pinot Noir
The delicate taste and velvety texture of our Pinot Noir is complemented by the robust flavour of Agria, a unique variety from Hungary. Agria projects a rich berry bouquet with muscat and lavender notes. Aging in old oak barrels enhances the floral complexity.
  Blackberry Port
This rich, sweet wine is produced from the luscious blackberries that abound in the estuary of the Cowichan River. This is an intense fruit wine, which reflects the warmth of the Cowichan summer. Enjoy it on its own or with a rich dessert.
  Coastal Red
A delicious blend of Pinot Noir, Merlot and an assortment of European grape varietals from our vineyard. Garnet red in colour with aromas of orange blossom, wild blackberry and spice. Juicy dark cherry fruit and black current flavour notes with a kiss of oak are followed by a peppery, berry finish. A light bodied red, nicely balanced with lots of fruit and just enough acidity, make this a very versatile and food friendly wine, ideal while picnicking al fresco, barbequing or just sipping on the patio.
  Coastal White
A delightful blend of Kerner, Müller Thurgau and other white varietals from our vineyard. This vintage produced intense fruit flavours, naturally balanced with good acidity. This Germanic style wine has a light straw hue and aromas of honeysuckle and fresh citrus fruit. Pear, orange and ripe peach flavour notes are followed by a long crisp, honeyed finish. Ideal for summer sipping or as an aperitif, superb with seafood, poultry and Asian dishes.
