    What to Expect
    A visit to the Cowichan Valley isn’t complete without going on a food and wine tour that will excite your senses and leave you longing to return! Only 45 minutes from the bustle of Nanaimo, Cowichan Valley truly is a little piece of the beautiful Island countryside. Your 8-hour tour includes tastings at five different venues, plus lunch and tasty snacks along the way. 

    Start the day with a wine tasting to get your tastebuds ready for the day. Afterwards, nourish yourself with a locally sourced lunch in the countryside at an amazing local restaurant. After lunch, you'll continue tasting the afternoon away throughout the valley's numerous vineyards and learn firsthand why Cowichan's burgeoning wine industry has earned a well-deserved reputation for award-winning wines. From land to hand, find out how your favorite wines are made and why specific grapes thrive on Vancouver Island.

    We have our favourites, however, it depends on the day. We always try to make sure it's the best experience possible and not all wineries are able to open every day for us.
