The warm, dry summers and mild, moist winters make southern and mid Vancouver Island a “cool” maritime Mediterranean climate ideal for winemaking. We are proud to be home to several award winning vineyards.

Church & State Wines

Originally established here on the island in 2004, Church & State Wines in Brentwood (a 15 minute drive from downtown Victoria) is the largest winery on Vancouver Island. Church & State are known for their bold coloured labels and cheeky branding. We recommend booking a lunch overlooking the vast vineyard while sipping award winning wines on a beautiful summer afternoon. Church & State wines focus on the unique terroir of the Brentwood region.

Unsworth Vineyards

Tradition meets artisanal winemaking. A family owned and operated winery committed to handcrafting wines of distinction in the Cowichan Valley. Unsworth is our favorite vineyard and we highly recommend taking a day trip to book a private tasting of their award winning wines and then a delicious lunch on their beautiful property. We adore their Rosé Charme De l’Isle and Sparkling Brut.

Located in the stunning Saanich peninsula, Deep Cove Winery is a destination vineyard implementing traditional winemaking methods to create high quality handcrafted wines. The vineyard is committed to sustainable growing practices. We love having lunch at the Deep Cove Chalet across the road, then sampling wines at the winery. We love their Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé.
