Wow! You’re going to love this day…everything about this day is fabulous!

Your local knowledgeable driver/guide will ensure you have a great day out.
Relax and have fun! Bring your camera.
The scenery along route is nothing short of spectacular. Our route includes mountain vistas, ancient rain forests, country scenery and the picturesque village of Cowichan Bay.

Once we arrive in the Valley all stops are within minutes of each other.

 Now the fun begins…

You’ll visit 2 local wineries, taste 4 – 6 wines and meet the owner/winemakers, feel their passion. Of course we take care of the tasting fees at each stop…just enjoy, we guarantee you will learn along the way and have fun.

 “Why do we swirl?”  Let’s find out as we visit the lovely seaside village of Cowichan Bay, our sommelier is waiting at the local cheese shop. We’ll pair a local wine with 4 local cheese and learn a few things…and wait till you taste this cheese…oh my, so good.  We’ll add fresh organic milled breads from the bakery next door to complete this classic picture.  

 If its Friday, Saturday or Sunday one of our favourite vineyards will be open, they offer true balsamic vinegar. Warning, once you taste this true balsamic, made the ancient method with only one ingredient and time …you will be spoiled for ever.  The only vineyard in North America to make Balsamic the true ancient method.

 Our day is not complete without visiting an apple orchard where their Cidery and Distillery are busy making wonderful libations of all sorts. We’ll taste English ciders with a kick, along with something special from the distillery. We’ll see what’s offered on the menu today and add few more local delights.

 Let’s go!

 We’ll bring a cooler if you decide cheese is a must have buy. Ask your guide about any specials being offered this day just for our guests.  Some farms may not be available day of tour due to farm emergency etc.
