Located just outside of Victoria, Cowichan Valley is Vancouver Island’s thriving wine region. This half-day tour takes you to several family-owned wineries and through scenic landscapes along the way. While wine is the focus, the day also features a farm-to-table lunch of your choice paired with a flight of local, organic hard ciders.
After pickup from your downtown Victoria hotel (reservation needed), hit the road by late morning. The Cowichan Valley wine region uses no pesticides or insecticides. At each winery that you visit, grapes are grown on the same lands where the vintage owners live and work.
Savor different varietals of wines you're introduced to at each winery. Purchase along the way as you like. (Wine cannot be shipped to the US, only Canada. US guests may buy as much as they like with little duty due.)
Have the opportunity to stop at a nearby seaside village and check out the charming stores. The village shop serves local delights, such as cheese and charcuterie. Don’t miss the delicious offerings at the organic bakery.
