Cowichan Valley Receives More Media Attention
We're so thrilled to see more positive reviews of the Cowichan Valley and the wineries within it!
Darren Parkman of Metro writes "After arriving in picturesque Cowichan Valley, I was shocked to learn there are nearly 20 first-class boutique-style wineries in the area. It almost resembled Napa Valley, as I drove past rolling hills of well groomed vines. In fact, with its warm summers and trademark wet and mild B.C. winters, the area is perfect for growing Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris Grapes, which is why new wineries are sprouting up every year.
No trip to wine country would be complete without sampling the product, and in abundance, in my case of course. I was impressed by my visit to several wineries in the area, including Averill Creek vineyards, which happens to be the largest on the Island. I found myself sipping a very palatable Pinot Noir reserve on the slope of Mount Prevost, while taking in the spectacular view of Cowichan valley. It felt like I was sitting in Napa Valley, only without the pomp and the prices. Nothing like a relaxing weekend exploring the best kept secret in B.C."
