The Island / Tasting Barn
Elephant Island wine is made with ♥ ...
The Tasting Barn is ground zero for sharing the love.
(Unfortunately we can't bind the love. We do not host weddings.)
Hit the Barn and learn more about wine in a friendly and fun way from a great team. The Barn staff are surrogate family (or in the case of Julia, the real mccoy). If you're looking for the inside scoop these guys moonlight on the wine production side too -- elephants are all about vertical integration.
☠ WARNING Wine snobbery is a criminal offence here ... all offenders are automatically sentenced to one season of Apricot de-pitting. Consider yourself warned.
There is no tasting fee charged. As most people have had limited (or unpleasant!) experience with fruit wine we relish the opportunity to make you a believer...
Kids are very welcome at Elephant Island. We have a great kids center well stocked with toy cars, paper airplanes, stuffed animals and of course tea sets, so be sure to bring the kids out of the car!
Same for your pets, please get them out of the car - especially in the summer. They can visit the tasting room on a leash.
For larger groups
We love a call ahead (250.496.5522) with rough details. This way we are able to ensure we have enough staff on hand to treat you right. Parking for large vehicles (IE coaches) is difficult - we recommend coaches drop passengers at the top entrance (it is an easy walk downhill to the tasting room) and pick-up from the bottom entrance (another easy walk - more downhill - through the orchard with lovely views of the lake). Groups larger than 9 are charged a tasting fee of $2 per person, which can be paid in advance.
