Sooke Harbour House Wine
Sooke Harbour House
The Sooke Harbour House is proud to showcase the foods of Vancouver Island and we believe that the wines of our region are the best accompaniments to the foods on our menus. These wines are generally characterised by low oak and alcohol levels, good acidity, and are medium bodied, all of which render these wines optimal candidates for wine and food pairing in the majority of cases. More than ninety percent of the wines that we serve come from British Columbia, and an increasing number come from Vancouver and Saltspring Islands. At the Sooke Harbour House, we hope that the marriage of regional wine and food will help lay the groundwork for an emerging Vancouver Island regional cuisine. It is also important, in this age of global warming, to provide more wines that travel shorter distances and, as much as possible, we are trying to support an increasing number of nearby wineries that adhere to sustainable, in some cases certified organic, viticultural practices. Every year the number of wineries in this region grows and so does the selection of good Island wines.
