Jeff and Susan Vandermolen witnessed the turning of the millennium on Easter Island alongside the island’s famous stone statues, or moai.
Now, they run Beaufort Vineyard and Estate Winery, one of the growing number of wineries on Vancouver Island just down the road from Comox.
A carved wooden moai keeps a steady eye over the vines. Guests can sit under the shade of trees and enjoy a glass and a picnic.
Beaufort’s wines have garnered national and international acclaim. Visit beaufortwines.ca
