Founded in 2001. Designed with gravity in mind.
Averill Creek's 150-ton capacity winery is built into the side of Mt. Prevost. With the help of Designer Vasco Pavlov, we embraced the opportunity to create a new kind of winery. Guided by ingenuity and gravity, we built an adaptable state-of-the-art facility that incorporates three buildings structured together, allowing wine to flow down from one stage to the next without the need for pumps. This gravity flow method allows for gentle handling of delicate varietals - helping to retain their subtle characteristics.
Our collection of hand crafted fine wines, including perennial sell-out Pinot Grigio, Prosecco style wine Charme De L'ile, and limited edition reserve wines, have helped raise the profile of Vancouver Island terroir and its winemaking in Canada and internationally.
