Wineries & Vineyards
Grapes on a vine (Andrea Johnson photo)
Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands support a vibrant wine industry with more than two dozen wineries. The vineyards complement Vancouver Island’s thriving farms, breweries, cideries, and dining scene.
Take a self-guided or guided wine tour of the four scenic wine regions that make up the “Wine Islands.” Taste blackberry port at Cherrypoint Vineyards in the Cowichan Valley. Relax at a bistro overlooking vineyards at Muse Winery on the Saanich Peninsula. Or discover hidden gems like Salt Spring Vineyards in the Gulf Islands or the Comox Valley’s Blue Moon Estate Winery.
Vancouver Island wineries have a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Most welcome visitors for tours and tastings. Many are small, family-owned, and run by friendly winemakers. Some wineries offer dining (mostly casual or informal) or picnic facilities, and host special events like live music. All four wine regions offer palate-pleasing vintages and some also produce fruit wines.

Port Alberni, British Columbia
The Alberni Pacific Railway, located in downtown Port Alberni, is one of Vancouver Island's premiere attractions. From the fully-restored 1912 CPR Train Station, guests will board the train pulled by a 1929 Baldwin steam locomotive. The track winds through the City of Port Alberni, past the Chase & Warren Estate Winery, and through the surrounding forest for approximately 10 kms, before arriving at the McLean Mill National Historic Site, the only commercially operating steam sawmill in Canada. The trip takes 35 minutes so you'll have the opportunity to sit back & enjoy the scenery as you're serenaded by the sound of steam whistles & the clatter of steel wheels on steel rails.
