Cowichan Valley Wine Tour
Spectacular views abound as we follow the Malahat drive overlooking the Salish Sea heading north along the Trans Canada Highway to the Cowichan Valley region. Identified as the Warm land by local first nations peoples the Cowichan valley is sheltered by a ridge of high mountains on the west side and warmed by the ocean to the east.
Sharing similar growing conditions as the northern regions of Germany & France our warm summers, temperate mild winters and gravelly soils suit some recognizable grape varietals like Pinot Gris, Pint Noir, Ortega, Marechal Foch as well as some fabulous blackberry dessert wines. Experience the traditional grape varieties of Europe handcrafted from a new world terrior.
Each winery has its own unique style; the welcoming staff is always happy to share tastings of their favourite wines. Blue Grouse Winery, Rocky Creek Winery, Zanatta Winery, Cherry Point Estate Vineyards, Glenterra Vineyards, Silverside Fruit Winery, Venturi-Schulze Vineyard & Merridale Cidery are some of the wineries we visit.
