An Exquisite Vineyard Retreat!
About Jenny Garlini
Once the preferred habitat of Blue Grouse, the 45 acres of Blue Grouse Estate are tucked away on a sunny slope of Vancouver Island’s Cowichan Valley, which is believed to take its name from a First Nation's word meaning "the warm land". A fitting name, as the valley enjoys Canada’s warmest mean temperature. The terroir encompasses wind protection by evergreen trees, an all-Southern exposure, a combination of clay and gravelly soil, and the nurturing of pure air and spring water. Thanks to this exceptional site, the vines require little fertilization and irrigation, just a drop of passion, a splash of dedication and hard work, and a pinch of obsession make the difference!

Our new favourite place for a City break.
Lovely setting, beautifully appointed. A perfect pastoral retreat.
Grouse House basked under a full moon during our visit and we heard owls in the vineyard throughout the night. A magical exprience!
Stunning place to stay
We enjoyed our two night stay - very luxurious and relaxing lovel cool house to escape from the heat of the day. Extremely comfortable.
What a beautiful setting and a fabulously comfortable place to stay for the weekend. Well worth it and everyone so friendly too.
You think the inside is gorgeous until you see the view!
We stayed at the Grouse House over the weekend during the BC Summer Games. Located right in the winery you couldn't ask for a better view from the king size bed in the master bedroom. They have thought of every little detail to make the stay more enjoyable along with a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge upon arrival! Melanie was extremely helpful and the location was central to many things. We would absolutely stay here again if we were in the area. I would highly recommend it!
A lovely property, in a lovely location!
