DEVINE WINERY AND DISTILLERY
Note: No Longer Open for Tasting. Wine Shop Only Monday to Friday.
The Devine Distillery is one of the premier Vineyards in the Saanich Peninsula, producing both awards winning wines and spirits. A family owned outfit; Devine is famous for producing organic wine from grapes grown using natural methods without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Grapes are picked by hand to maintain their integrity and processed using tried and tested traditional techniques that ensure maximum extraction of the grape’s flavours. As a result, spirits from Devine are famous for their rich taste, delightful aromas and a mix of flavours that will delight any palate. Set in beautiful surroundings overlooking spectacular views and worth stopping by just for the view.
Devine was created by John and Cathy Windsor in 2007 out of a 25-acre piece of land located in Saanichton on the Saanich Peninsula land. Originally a grape farm supplying organic grapes to local wineries, the decision was soon made to open an onsite winery and experiment with various types of grape varietals to see which ones would thrive. Early grape varieties included Pinot Gris and Noir, along with the Austrian white grape Gruner Veltliner. The winery has since diversified to include other varietals over the years. The first vintage was produced in 2009, and today, the farm produces over 2000 cases of wine which are sold in the winery’s store as well as well as in selected stores around the Peninsula and neighbouring cities. The Distillery offers a wide array of spirits including four types of gin, rum, and flavoured brandies.
