In 1999, Marcel Mercier and Elaine Kozak purchased a hundred-year old farm on Salt Spring Island and began the long process of converting it from sheep-grazing to wine-growing. Seven acres were planted to vine and a winery built. A century-old orchard of apple, pear, plum and cherry trees was rehabilitated and stand of magnificent Garry Oaks was preserved and gives the winery estate its name.
