An afternoon of fun


Join us for a 6 hour excursion as we head out of Victoria for a 40 minute drive to the Cowichan Valley where you will spend an afternoon sampling some award winning wines in some spectacular settings. With a climate similar to northern Germany and France you will find recognisable grape variations such as Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir plus classic reds, whites, sparkling wine, fruit wines, and ciders. The wineries, situated close together make a perfect day trip for the wine lover.

We will pick you up and start our excursion in our fully air conditioned van. Enjoy the drive as we make a quick stop at Goldstream Park where you will marvel at some of the ancient trees, some over 400 yrs. of age. As we head over the Malahat Drive you will have beautiful views of the Salish Sea, islands and much more in the distance.

We have four winery stops on our six hour tour.
Tasting charges are not included in the our tour and are approx $5. 00. We can even stop for lunch at one of the wineries or a bistro along the way.
