“What’s in your glass should never become more important than who you are sharing it with.”


“Wine is grown, not made.”



100% Estate Grown. “This means we use our own grapes that we farm on our own vineyard.”


Located in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island BC, Emandare Vineyard sits on a unique south sloping hillside in the rain shadow of Mount Prevost overlooking Somenos Lake. These elements combined with our passion for stewarding this piece of land alongside nature gives us the ability to naturally craft terroir-driven wines with old world, low intervention techniques.



Not just a beverage, wine is an experience meant to be shared over a meal with good company. At the heart of what we do is a genuine love for people. Farming and crafting our wines is simply our way of contributing to that experience.


You will often hear us say; “Wine is grown, not made.” We are firm believers that being responsible stewards of our land is what creates and captures the quality of our delicious, terroir-driven wines.


We have been blessed with this beautiful place that we get to experience on a daily basis. Our hope is that you too can experience Emandare either through sipping on a glass of our wine or taking the time to visit us here at our home.
