Averill Creek is a boutique winery on Vancouver Island specializing in premium quality estate-grown wines.
Established in 2001
First vintage 2004,
Winery opened to public 2006
Maybe my favorite on the island.
The owner is a super nice guy. Great setting, super chill, and the best selection of estate reds, in my opinion. The higher elevation and direction of the hill side, helps.
Very good wines and a lovely setting for an outdoor bring-your-own picnic. There are gorgeous ocean views from high up the mountainside, yet the vineyard is very close to Duncan. Tours of the operation can be arranged and are very interesting.
