Just a short drive from downtown Victoria, this 25 acre winery is located on a hillside
overlooking the farmland of the Saanich Peninsula. With one of the mildest climates in
Canada it offers the perfect growing environment for predominantly Germanic style white
The 25 acre estate with views of the valley and ocean beyond offers the perfect setting
for 11 acres of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The 11 acre of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, in
combination with an additional 80 acres in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia ensures
that Church & State will continue to create an enticing portfolio of premium and super
premium wines. The Okanagan Valley vineyards are found mainly on the Black Sage Bench
which is home of such acclaimed wineries as Burrowing Owl and Black Hills.
Industrial meets sophistication in this exquisitely designed building utilizing the
perfect combination of natural fibres and timbers, metals and concrete. Large windows and
doorways lead you to a wrap-around deck overlooking the vineyard and the perfect spot to
enjoy a light lunch or bottle of wine. The main floor of The Winery with its open concept
floorplan bring the experience of the winery to fruition.
From the marketplace filled with boutique souvenirs and giftware to the 50 person tasting
bar with a 30 foot barrel wall as a backdrop you will feel the energy of a busy working
winery. Take a stroll through the market garden, feast on a picnic lunch beside the pond
or fritter away the afternoon with a game of croquet.
