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.
