Golf and Wine
Southern Vancouver Island is the second-largest wine region in British Columbia, after the Okanagan Valley. The majority of Vancouver Island’s wineries and its lone cidery are located in the Cowichan Valley, 45 minutes north of Victoria.
The Cowichan Valley means the “warm land” in its native tongue and the vineyards located here enjoy a unique location with ideal growing conditions on southern, sun-drenched slopes. Vancouver Island’s coastal climate is mild, by comparison to other major wine growing regions in North America, yet well-suited to growing grapes.
