Dennis Zanatta bought a farm here in the fifties and the family now has 30 acres devoted to wine grapes. There is no doubt that this is the farm which was first to grow grapes for wine on Vancouver Island and which is still active and which is still owned by the same family. A number of vineyards began legal operations in the same time frame once the Social Credit government allowed the registration of farmgate wineries, but the Zanatta’s definitely hold the title of first family.
The wine shop is open from spring to late autumn. All their wines are produced from grapes grown on their Glenora vineyard. Specializing in champagne-style wines, they also produce a number of popular white and red wines.
