The Vancouver Island wine region staple underwent a big vineyard expansion in the last few years.
Blue Grouse Winery and Team have been planning their 26-acre vineyard expansion under Pedro Parra’s tutelage. They have been working with Señor Terroir for about 5 years now, starting with their first expansion, the Paula vineyard which was planted in 2017. The Brunner Vineyard is the current expansion project and will have five varietals: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and some Gamay Noir. Planting started in 2020 and will continue this year in February and May.
