40 Knots Estate Wines
40 Knots is one of the largest grape wineries in the Comox Valley and one of the largest on Vancouver Island. Located on 24 stunning acres, on a slope facing the Salish Sea, we craft wines distinctly shaped by a windswept, sun-soaked microclimate. The majority of our rootstock arrived here from France in 2005. We grow four noble varieties: Pinot Noir; Pinot Gris; Chardonnay; Gamay Noir. We also grow two german hybrids: Schonberger; Siegerrebe, and one French hybrid: Pinot Auxerrois.
Stainless steel driven Chardonnay to reflect the freshness and purity of fruit in this timeless variety. Showcasing the vineyard and not the barrel. A clean, fresh, and disrobed Chardonnay.

A lush rendition of an Alsatian staple. Pear, nashi, and Granny Smith apples all shine through with sweet nectar notes.
Designed as an all-encompassing white wine to showcase the delicate, refreshing, yet complex wine style only found on Vancouver Island. Clean fruit, hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Slow and cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain aromatics.
If you love food, this juicy well-rounded Auxerrois is your soul mate.
Gently pressed to tank resulting in an exceptionally balanced and dry West Coast specialty.
A Vancouver Island staple. This Petite Milo thrives in Island conditions and never disappoints.
These handpicked grapes are destemmed and rested on skins for 24 hours to provide delicate tannins and beautiful Rose Color.
Schonberger and Pinot Gris fermented and aged on skins in Italian Terracotta Amphora. No intervention, just patience. When timing was perfect, grapes were pailed from Amphora and screened to stainless without pressing.
