Luxury Wine Tours of Vancouver Island


Vancouver Island is home to beautiful vineyards that offer award winning wines. You will have the choice of experiencing some of the finest vineyards on the Saanich Peninsula or the lush Cowichan Valley. I always recommend the Cowichan Valley as it is home to some of the oldest and largest vineyards on the island. I grew up in this area so I know these ole country roads like the back of my hand, It would be my pleasure to share the finest scenery the valley has to offer. The tour consists of 3 stops, at each stop you would typically get an average of 4 tastings. I would typically recommend two wine vineyards and a Cidery.

I can accommodate up at a maximum of 21 passengers, please inquire for customized tours and rates.

Please be advised that over the winter months some vineyards change there tastings hours at the last minute, so please expect last minute changes.
