Winery 'Update'!

The Cowichan Valley is amongst the best winegrowing regions in Canada. To help express and share the Cowichan Valley's unique terroir we are updating our winery and building a phenomenal new tasting room. 

Exciting winery additions include, a reimagined crush pad, dedicated red and white wine barrel halls, and a bottling area. On top of which, the relaxed and spacious new tasting room will allow for a wider breadth of wine experiences  – always, in our informed yet unpretentious manner.

Unsworth's current Tasting Room & Restaurant will remain open during the renovations and we hope you will join us in our eager anticipation!

Designed by Vancouver based Simcic Architecture Studio, our new winery is a state of the art fusion of function and form. As you approach, the outside features a low slung roofline, blending into the bucholic farm landscape. Beneath ground are separate red and white wine barrel cellars to allow our wines to mature properly in constant and correct conditions. Unsworth also worked with process flow engineer Gerard de Villiers for the flow of the winery. A resident of South Africa, Gerard has designed process flow for Graham Beck, De Toren, Boschendal, Hamilton Russell, and has also done process design work with the new sparkling wineries for Nyetimber and Gusbourne Estate.

This new phase sets up the winemaking team to continue the luxury of keeping all our vineyards and clones separate throughout winemaking until the final blends are determined. These small lots are hugely important to us as we continue to unlock the many secrets our various vineyards and clones have in store.

Whether you're a first time visitor or an old friend, you'll be welcomed into the tasting room which provides the ideal environement for enjoying Unsworth alongside family and friends. The adjacent patio is a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere to soak in Cowichan's majestic beauty surrounded by thoughtful landscaping.

 

In crafting Cowichan's coastal legacy, this is an exhilarating next step
