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.
SUSTAINABILITY: 40 Knots has made strides towards sustainability by evaluating the environmental impact of each process, each procedure, and each purchase before any decisions are made. Partnering and collaborating with like-minded businesses have been key to success. Our sheep, chickens, geese, and Ziggy all have a hand helping us produce clean natural wines.
ETHICAL WINES: At 40 Knots, clean ethical wines are a promise. This guides us in every step we take farming, cellar management, crush pad operation, our store, our delivery to the customer and our promise to protect the environment. Our goal is to grow ultra-premium grapes on Vancouver Island. Some of the greatest vineyards in the world are grown near oceans with the salt air embedding the Burgundy oak. Great wines are not made in the tank and the barrel. Great wines come from the vineyard.
We are very excited to be part of this growing wine region, and we have lots to share. We love collaborating on stories and we love interviews.
