Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet a guide at a central location in Victoria for a 10am departure, then leave the city from the Cowichan Valley, a scenic region of farms, forests, and coastline.

Your first wine destination is Enrico Winery, where you’ll taste their distinctive red wines on a gorgeous deck with views of the vineyards and onsite trout pond. Prepare for a day of tasting with a lunch that pairs perfectly with the vineyard’s award-winning wines.

From there, continue to Blue Grouse Estate Winery and Vineyard, whose roots stretch back to 1977, and explore the flavors of the island’s oldest vines at a brand new tasting facility.

The third stop of the day is Unsworth Vineyards, a family-owned winery that specializes in hand-crafted wines. You’ll pause for a tasting, and join your wine guide for a tour of the vineyard’s production facility and vines. If time allows, visit a fourth vineyard before the return trip to Victoria, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.

We were disappointed in this tour...

We were disappointed in this tour and it definitely was not worth the money charged. Some elements that were advertised were not provided such as hotel pickup, beverages, a visit to a Seaside Village and tour guide. In addition, the vehicle used was not appropriate for a guide had there been one to explain and address the features of the Cowichen Valley and its wines. Only 3 wineries were visited, 2 of which were basically solicitations for their wines ecept Cherry Point which was excellent, The lunch that was provided was basically hamburgers on a grill. Instead of visiting the village, we sat at the Enrico winery for more than 2hours while tour participants purchased their wines but there was no tour of the vineyards offered as described. Our driver was very nice but not a tour guide.

Great time, great tour guide, I think Eric was his name. Had lunch overlooking the vineyards, perfect weather, perfect day. We had a small group, only 6 of us and it was just delightful. I was excited to try Canadian wines and they were actually pretty good I'm from California so know good wine. Bought two bottles and brought them home in my suitcase, yes, they made it safe and sound.
