Do you have a tasting fee?
Yes. There is a $5 per person tasting fee at Beaufort when we are open to the public. However, the $5 fee is waived when that individual purchases a bottle of wine.
How can I find out what wines will be available for tasting on a given weekend?
We typically offer a tasting of 5 wines on tasting days, and the lineup changes each weekend. If you would like to know what wines we are tasting on a given weekend, you can call ahead (on Fridays): 250-338-1357.
Do you take reservations?
We do not take reservations but we do appreciate a heads up if there are more than 6 people in your party. Our tasting room is small – we can legally accommodate 30 people at one time so during busier periods, there may be a short wait. We do not host private parties and functions.
Do you serve food at Beaufort?
We do not serve food at Beaufort. We do have some snack foods available for purchase in our wine store. We encourage our guests to bring a picnic to enjoy in our picnic area either before or after their tasting.
Do you sell wine by the glass?
No. Guests using the picnic area can purchase wine by the bottle to enjoy with their picnic. We provide an ice bucket (where necessary), glasses and water. Unfinished wine can be re-corked and taken home.
Do you have a lounge?
No. We do not have a lounge/lounge licence. As such, there is no service in our picnic area. Tastings are conducted in the tasting room only.
Are children allowed in the tasting room?
Yes. When accompanied by a parent or guardian, minors are allowed in our tasting room and picnic area. Please do not leave children unattended. Beaufort is a working farm and winery and we prioritize the safety of all our guests.
Do you rent out winery spaces for private events/functions?
Thank you for thinking of us, but no; Beaufort does not rent out the tasting room or picnic area for private events/functions.
Can I vape/smoke at Beaufort?
No. Our entire property is smoke/vape free.
Can I bring my pet?
Only registered service or guide animals may enter the tasting room. If you have a small, well-behaved pet, you are welcome to keep them with you, on leash, on the deck or in the picnic area. Please pick up after your pet.
Are Beaufort wines suitable for vegans?
YES! We never use animal products or by-products in our winemaking.
Is Beaufort wheelchair accessible?
Door openings are 35.5″ minimum. The carpark, picnic area, winery, tasting room and washrooms are all one level. There is one threshold at the main entrance (1.75″ rise).
Why don’t you ship to my province/country?
Despite the federal government’s move to eliminate all barriers to interprovincial alcohol shipping in June 2019, there is still work to be done at various provincial levels to fully reform Canada’s prohibition era liquor laws. You can find an up-to-date list of the provinces we do ship to here.
We’re sorry, but we do not have a licence to ship wine outside of Canada.
Do you offer winery tours?
We love to offer a winery tour as part of a regular tasting at no extra cost! Because we are a small team, it’s not always possible for us to get away from the tasting bar (especially on busy summer days). That said, if a group desires a deeper dive into Beaufort’s winemaking and viniculture, we suggest booking a private tasting outside of our regular tasting room hours. Private tastings are tailored to each group’s primary interest and last approximately 1.5hrs. Due to our capacity limit, only smaller groups can be accommodated. Email email@example.com for more information on private tastings.
