Wine, Honey, Lavender, & Farm-to-Table Food
Enjoy a Vancouver Island culinary immersion of farm-to-table food and wine. Only 45 minutes from Victoria, along an exquisite scenic route, is Cowichan Valley: a beautiful green land of wine, honey, and lavender, where you can truly savour Vancouver Island’s culinary tradition.
Cowichan means ‘warm land’ in the First Nation Salish tongue, and it is indeed in a region considered to be the warmest in Canada. On your private tour and culinary immersion into the valley of Cowichan, you get to experience unparalleled scenery, delicious farm-to-table food, and an award-winning wine tasting.
Your private tour from Victoria takes you up and over the Malahat for a stop at a spectacular viewpoint of Brentwood Bay and the Saanich Peninsula. Venture into the lush valley of Cowichan with its picturesque farms, vineyards, and fields of orchards. Artisanal winemaking, farm-fresh produce, bistros, and wine tasting rooms characterize this beautiful region on Vancouver Island. A country road leads you past a vineyard that is nestled within an ancient walnut and apple orchard.
Choose to eat or taste wine in a cozy 1900s restored farmhouse overlooking acres of grapevines and an herb and vegetable garden. Here on Vancouver Island, you can encounter a variety of award-winning vineyards and bistros, where we may stop to indulge in sumptuous food. Restaurants in this coastal region serve BC-inspired cuisine showcasing fresh local ingredients. After lunch, explore Cowichan Bay with your private, knowledgeable guide and visit a quaint bakery and cheese store, or you have the option of visiting another vineyard.
