Putting Vancouver Island on the Map

Winemaker Susan Vandermolen  of  Beaufort Estate Winery  stand up and take a bow.
Your putting Vancouver Island on  the world map of outstanding wineries.

You managed to bring 27 medals home to the Comox Valley from the International Wine Challenge (IWC) in London, England, the All Canadian Wine Championships (ACWC), and the NorthWest Wine Summit (NWWS)!
Located 8km north of Courtenay the winery has a great view of Beaufort mountain range.
The wineries logo is the Moai statues of Easter Island. Owners Susan and Jeff Vandermolen sought out a local carver, Stan Skuse (X-Dream Sculptures) from Campbell River, and commissioned him to carve their Moai
The winery was licensed in 2007 and is the first in the Comox Valley. They produce about 2,000 cases on 3.2 hectares.
