Description

Explore the Cowichan Valley and enjoy included tastings at an abundant choice of wineries located within 30 minutes of each other. The Cowichan Valley is located equidistant between passenger gateways in Nanaimo and Victoria and a comfortable day trip from Vancouver. With a mild climate and preferable geography, the Cowichan Valley produces classic reds, whites and sparkling wines, and proves to be one of the best for Pinot grapes in Canada. A variety of orchards or farms in the region has inspired fruitier varieties – including berry, fruit wines and ciders, and port-style dessert wines.  This tour varies in length (from 4-6 hours), and includes tastings at 3 wineries for all passengers.  Pair the 6-hour tour option with an optional bistro lunch reservation (additional cost), or upgrade to include a gourmet picnic lunch.

You will be picked up in a luxury sedan at a location of your choosing in downtown Victoria - your hotel, attraction, transportation link, office, or residence. You’ll travel to Cowichan Valley, while enjoying a brief overview city tour of Downtown Victoria and historic Chinatown. On your way to the wineries you will stop at a scenic viewpoint on Malahat Drive for incredible views of the Saanich Peninsula and Gulf Islands.

During the tour, you will stop at three wineries of your choosing to enjoy included wine tastings. You can opt to make a reservation at a vineyard bistro for lunch OR enjoy your picnic at a licensed tasting area, overlooking Cowichan Valley, where you can enjoy wines by the glass or tasting flights with your picnic. After the completion of your tour, enjoy the scenic ride back to Victoria.

This deluxe tour is available in a luxury car, with air conditioning, complimentary bottled water, and uniformed chauffeur.
