Dirty Laundry Vineyards


7311 Fiske St
Summerland, BC V0H 1Z2


Dirty Laundry Vineyards

Scherzinger Vineyards was originally bought by Edgar and Elizabeth Scherzinger as a cherry orchard. The orchard was removed and in its place Gewürztraminer was planted in 1978, then eventually Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

The Scherzinger Vineyards was purchased by Ron and Cher Watkins, They changed the name to Dirty Laundry in 2005. Success followed and expansion was necessary so the Watkins sold to Bob Campbell, Hermann Teichtmeister and partnership in 2007. The group expanded, planting about 50,000 vines on several sites in the Summerland area. Expansions begun in 2010, including separate wineries for white and red wines, are designed to grow Dirty Laundry to a production of 20,000 cases. The winery has tripled its tasting room, added a conference and party room, added parking for buses and has build a new patio cantilevered over the vineyard.

The Marketing company that came up with Blasted Church suggested Dirty Laundry. Back in the 1800’s a former railway builder named Sam Suey decided he’d had enough of the hard labour pounding spikes and laying track, and opened a laundry in Summerland where the labourers could bring their work clothes for washing. While they sat around waiting for the clothes to air dry, the men would play cards and gamble. Soon Suey spotted another opportunity. He converted the floor above the laundry into a gaming hall and bordello. 

The winery has an excellent Pizza restaurant called the Red Iron Grillie. The restaurant over looks the valley. They host numerous events through out the year.

You have to pass a washing line hung with underwear to get into the shop!

Symphony vineyard

6409B Oldfield Rd
Saanichton, BC



Symphony vineyard has been farmed by the Brooks family in Central Saanich since the mid 1950's.   Known as the Tanner❠farm, Harry Tanner was a founding member of  Growers Wine Company.   During the 1960's, the family grew over 20 acres of loganberries for Growers Winery (then located in Victoria). 

When asked: Why did you choose the name of your Winery?  We think there are some interesting connections between wine and music. The definition of Symphony, “an elaborate instrumental composition in three or more movements, of grand proportions and varied elements”, could almost describe the long process leading to a bottle of wine – springtime in the vineyard, bursting into a long ‘summer movement' as grapes form, a quieter fall ripening phase followed by the flurry of harvest and fermentations, and a final slow aging when the sensory character of the wine develops.      

signature wines are Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris. Their wines are made in an aromatic style. separately. They have 2.2 acres and produce 300 cases with plans to reach 600 cases.

Locally made cheeses, and meats and other local specialty food items will be available for picnic lunches in the barrel room or picnic grounds along with farm made jams and chutneys.
