Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery: crafting exquisite small batch wines
In operation since 2006, Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery was the first estate winery in the Comox Valley. Current owners James Cameron and Suzy Amis Cameron purchased the vineyard and winery in 2014 and continue to build on the existing foundation of award-winning wines that have been awarded 70 national and international awards.
Located on a picturesque estate with amazing views of the Beaufort Range, Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery eagerly welcomes guests to sample their world-class handcrafted wine. From crisp, luscious, and aromatic whites to earthy, aged reds, there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy.
Why do we choose Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery?
Dedicated to bottling small batches of wine in an environmentally sustainable manner, Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery maintains control over the quality of their wines by staying as small as they are.
Despite a heavy demand for their product that always sells out, Beaufort doesn’t plan to increase production of their wines. They firmly believe that maintaining a balance between work and play is the key to their success, as well as the sustainability of their business.
Obviously they’re doing something right to continuously create consistent, high quality wines from grapes grown on the estate (and other BC family-owned vineyards) year after year.
And we’re proud to feature some of them on our wine list!
Where else can you find wines from Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery?
Beaufort’s wine can be purchased by the bottle at Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery tasting room throughout the summer months starting May 20. In the meantime, their unbelievably delicious product can be found on the shelves of a selection of liquor stores and specialty retailers across Vancouver Island.

Whatever way this wine is poured into your glass, you’ll definitely want the whole bottle. But don’t take our word for it!
