About LuLu Island Winery
Though it’s the newest winery in Richmond, LuLu Island Winery boasts a deeper history. The buisness gets its name from its location on Richmond Island, which was formerly known as "LuLu Island." According to local legend, LuLu was the name of the mistress of the man who first established the land, and the scandal eventually compelled the community to change the name. Today, the winery produces award-winning red and white wines, fruit wines, and ice wines on this historic spot.
LuLu’s resident winemaker has more than 30 years of experience crafting fine wines. Using grapes from the nearby Okanagan Valley, he churns out vintages such as the 2014 Viognier White Icewine, which snagged two Gold medals at All Canadian Wine Championships and Japan Wine Challenge in 2017. LuLus 2014 Meritage Red Wine, won Bronze medal at Japan Wine Challenge in 2017. But it’s the sweet fruit wines, flavored with raspberry, and blueberry that keep the locals and the humminbirds coming back.
