Hornby Heart Vineyard is located on beautiful Hornby Island, BC.

This vineyard has found it’s heart home.  Established in 2002,  as Carbrea Vineyard, it had a name change to Isla de Lerena Vineyard to use the Island name from the Spanish explorers in 1791.  With new ownership, comes a new name.  Your webhost passes on congratulations to Daniel and Rebecca Goodman as the new owners, and a welcome to the new name:  Hornby Heart Vineyard.

Abundant sunny days give our vines a distinctive growing opportunity, which allows us to handcraft small batches of superior wines for the enjoyment to those who visit the island paradise.

We invite you to visit Hornby Heart Vineyard today! Experience the breathtaking views from our vineyard while enjoying one of our handcrafted wines.


“Table” Food Lounge 

Hornby Heart is excited to invite you to our lounge and kitchen on the vineyard: ‘Table” is located in an open-concept, hand-crafted venue.

Table is the perfect place to enjoy a great meal. Enjoy your meal on our new patio, paired perfectly with our in-house wine selection, all while taking in those beautiful vineyard views. Visit our website for up-to-date hours and menus.

Welcome to table — where local seasonal bounty meets French fusion. It’s our take on garden to table cuisine.

chef Daniel, executive chef

A master of his craft, Chef Daniel brings years of experience and expertise to the table — transforming fresh, seasonal ingredients into a symphony of flavours. Classically trained at Le Cordon Bleu in pastry and cuisine, his early experience at acclaimed establishments in Banff and Lake Louise was followed by the prestigious honour of cooking for athletes at the 2010 Olympics under Chef Michael Smith. By 26, he led a bustling Toronto steakhouse, refining his skills under Chef Joe Mercuri.

While French cuisine is the foundation of Chef Daniel’s culinary philosophy, his travels and heritage have added a unique flair to his cooking. He draws inspiration from Southeast Asian and Indian flavours, techniques he explored through extensive courses and travels.

Additionally, his Jewish and Eastern European heritage play a significant role in his approach to food. Particularly, from his grandmothers, who emphasized the importance of love and heart.

Cordon Bleu Trained, Red Seal Certification: These prestigious designations signify Chef Daniel’s dedication to the culinary arts, demonstrating exceptional skills in all aspects of kitchen management, from menu development and preparation to plating and presentation.
