The historical background of this piece of land dates back to the days of Chief Justice Matthew Baille Begbie, a.k.a. the "Hanging Judge", who was appointed the first Judge of the Supreme Court of the crown colony of British Columbia in 1858. He served in that position when British Columbia joined Canada as a province in 1871 and continued through to his death in 1894.
The Starling Lane property was acquired by Judge Begbie in 1859. Governor James Douglas, representing the British Crown, signed the documents for the transfer of title from the Crown to Judge Begbie. To see Judge Begbie's 1889 courtroom, still in use today, visit the Maritime Museum of B.C. in Bastion Square, downtown Victoria.
The winery site has retained much of the 19th century ambience of Begbie's era. This unique setting is often used for small weddings and other special celebrations. Contact Jacqueline for more information.
