Church & State Wines
Church & State Wines (Church & State) are one of the top producers of quality wines in B.C., having received a wide range of national and international awards and accolades.
New to exporting outside of the Canadian market, the company currently offers a wide range of red, white and sparkling wines in various vintages, focusing on the unique terroir of their South Okanagan Valley and Vancouver Island vineyards. Church & State produces wines in a number of varieties, such as: syrah; cabernet sauvignon; pinot gris; chardonnay; and their quintessential bordeaux blend. The wines are produced from grapes grown on their 120 acres of estate vineyards. They have been recognized as producing Canada’s Best Red Wine five times since 2009, and acknowledged by international panels and foreign dignitaries including Janice Robinson, Master of Wine, Wine Advisor to the Queen.
All wines are assessed and certified by the Vintner’s Quality Alliance program to ensure safety and regularly receive 90+ point scores in trade publications.
Established in 2004 in Victoria, Church & State was founded by entrepreneur Kim Pullen when she purchased a 25-acre estate on the Saanich Peninsula, which had been home to a now defunct winery. Subsequent acquisitions of vineyards across B.C. helped the company grow into the award winning producer of premium wines they are today. Church & State has been a vocal advocate for the promotion of 100% B.C. grown and made wines, both domestically and internationally.
