As a wine club member of 40 Knots, we have enjoyed each bottle delivered to us, however, on a recent trip to France, we gained an even bigger appreciation for the 40 Knots wines. 40 Knot's Auxerrois being one of our favorites, we wanted to taste the Auxerrois made in Strasbourg and compare. I have to say, that by the second bottle, we knew we were in good company with 40 Knot's Auxerrois. 40 Knot's Auxerrois has so much more structure and is much more complex than any we tasted in France. In my opinion, no need to import when you have some of the best wines right here on Vancouver Island.

This one is really a winner! Unique and complex describes it well. In enjoyed it with fine cheese appies, prawns, and creamy pasta.
