Read from the Book

(On Blue Grouse Vineyards, in the Cowichan Valley) Blue Grouse’s reputation is built on its whites and on Pinot Noir. The winery also has an exclusive wine called Black Muscat- exclusive because Hans never gave cuttings to any other grower. The variety was propagated from a few vines, perhaps of Hungarian origin, that were in the vineyard when Hans bought the property. “I gave the grapes to a home winemaker, a friend of mine, and he made a wonderful wine from it,” Hans recalls. Soon, Hans was making about 800 litres (175 gallons) annually of an aromatic dry red, aged in American oak barrels, a wine unique in British Columbia.
