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.
This limited release 2014 spent 2 years on lees, aging in our cellar. Disgorged in 2014, with no dosage.

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.
