Raise your glass to Cowichan Valley wines: Self-guided festival returns Aug. 1 to 31

12 wineries. 31 days. 36 unforgettable wines. Raise your glass this summer to the Cowichan Valley Wine Festival.

The self-guided passport-style festival invites you to explore 12 award-winning wineries across the Cowichan Valley from Aug. 1 to 31. Explore Cowichan over 31 hot summer days, with your passport and tasting glass.

The festival highlights the Valley’s unique place among British Columbia wine regions.

Cowichan has been designated as a specific British Columbian sub-GI wine region – an important distinction so you know your wine was produced with at least 95 per cent Cowichan-grown grapes. It’s part of what makes the Valley’s wine-makers and wine so special.

Participating wineries include: Averill Creek Vineyard; Blue Grouse Estate Winery; Cherry Point Estate Wines; Damali Winery; Deol Estate Winery; Divino Estate Winery; Enrico Winery; Glenterra Winery; Rocky Creek Winery; Unsworth Vineyards; Venturi-Schulze Vineyards; and Zanatta Vineyards.

All events will follow the current health protocols. Check with each location before arriving for the latest information about safety precautions and note that some businesses require reservations for all tastings.
