Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery

Susan and Jeff Vandermolen are the owners, winemakers, and vineyard managers of the Beaufort Vineyard & Estate winery, located in Courtenay -- the 1st Estate Winery in the Comox Valley.

Beaufort is located 8 km north of Courtenay, off the Old Island Highway, and takes its name from the Beaufort mountain range, which can be viewed in its entirety from the property. The owners have shared a passion for travel, food, and have been making wine together since 1983.

The Winery was licensed in 2007, and the Tasting Room was opened in 2008. Since opening, Beaufort wines have been awarded 30 prestigious medals … and counting! Beaufort produces approximately 1800 cases per year from grapes grown on the Beaufort Estate and other BC family-owned vineyards. Beaufort wines are sold just at the Winery, via their website, and at select fine restaurants.

The Beaufort philosophy: Handcraft highest quality wines, with minimal inputs, at a reasonable price, and provide a pleasant experience when visiting the Winery. Signature wines include: "Ça BEAUTAGE", “Beaudacious”, “Beauhemian”, “Carpe Diem”, “Black”, plus a selection of other premium white and red wines. Beaufort’s vineyard and winery practices are environment, animal, and people friendly.
