Beautiful countryside vineyards and bistros


Enjoy lush green countryside, dazzling ocean views, tasty food and regional wine on your culinary excursion on Vancouver Island. Your private tour of Vancouver Island wine awaits just north of Victoria, BC. There is much in this outing to fill the spirit and the senses, wonderful vineyards, choice bistros and restaurants by the sea, quaint farm markets and specialty food shops.

This tour takes you to one of two wine regions on Vancouver Island, the Saanich Peninsula or Cowichan Valley. Cowichan Valley up Vancouver Island takes about an hour to reach from Victoria. The Saanich Peninsula takes half the time. Yet both food and wine destinations offer unique vistas, and scenic driving. You will venture into lush valleys of honey, grapevines and lavender, to enjoy a unique culinary experience wine tasting, eating fresh farm to table food, and capturing the beauty of the Pacific North West on Vancouver Island.

A Recent Review of this tour

Elizabeth was prompt and friendly. She picked wineries that were unique and different from each other. Her lunch recommendation was great. She was flexible and happy to squeeze in a stop for cider tasting as well when we asked. Overall a great day tour.
