Jams & jellies from estate grown and local fruit. Verjus is 100% estate-grown in our Cobble Hill vineyard in the warm Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.

Verjus (green juice, sometimes called Verjuice) is pure, unfermented grape juice pressed from unripe or semi-ripe fruit. Used since the Middle Ages as an alternative to lemon or lime, it is enjoying renewed popularity as a versatile, vibrant condiment. Prepare a salad dressing or a delicious sauce, deglaze a pan, create a sorbet, a cocktail, or a multitude of culinary delights. Check out our recipes!
