Our goal for this day is to provide a wonderful experience traveling the back-roads showcasing our beautiful Cowichan Valley.
We mix up our winery visits as most are small family owned wineries
we try to support as many as possible during the seasons.
Vineyards offered will be from Duncan & Cowichan area.
We will always include 2 vineyard stops and tastings.
We will not promote which vineyard we visit till day of departure.
The Cowichan region is an agriculturally rich area of Vancouver Island, BC nestled between rivers, mountains and ocean beaches on the west coast of Canada. With many first class chefs and wine makers now calling the area home it is becoming renowned for a vibrant wine and culinary scene with beautiful, peaceful and relaxing country back-roads.
At the end of our day we visit a local Tea farm to relax, learn and savor.
Small organic farm in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
They grow a variety of plants and flowers where they blend with organic estate grown teas from around the world to create a true artisan experience of tea + art + nature.
We experience a tea + sweet pairing from their selection of over 100 teas with a tea infused sweet culinary delight.
The barn’s original milking room is home to a funky gallery featuring one of a kind hand-built ceramics.
Work includes teapots as well as other functional + decorative clay art.
We will be including a stop around lunch time in Cowichan Bay. We'll visit a local favorite bakery for an oven fresh organic German style pretzel. You'll have some free time to explore this sea-side village on your own, grab a quick bite to eat or explore the shops. Water will also be provided on tour. Feel free to bring your own snacks too!

What is NOT included in your Groupon and welcomed?
What to wear?
Frankly what ever you like! No fashion police on this tour!
Some guests prefer to walk in high heels, some in thongs, however, we probably would recommend sensible shoes for uneven ground and what ever a farm might have laying about not everything is sweet smelling in the country.
This tour showcases the back-roads and country living, nothing uptown about this day!
Dress for the weather, best in layers to be prepared for what ever mother nature might have in store for this day.
Our Motto "you can only get so wet".
