Averill Creek is a winery on Vancouver Island’s Cowichan Valley sub-appellation. They cultivate or source most of their fruit within a 2-kilometre radius of the site.
The project aims to make honest wines representing the location and vintage. They employ a hands-off approach in cultivation and winemaking to ensure a smooth transition from vineyard to glass. The wines are naturally fermented with no enzymes or nutrients, and only a small amount of sulphur is added. The majority of them are unfiltered and unfined. Visitors are welcome to come to taste some wine, take a guided tour of the vineyard, or have a complete sit-down lunch on their beautiful terrace.
