Unwind and take a break from all that skiing, hiking and biking with an indulgent day of wine tasting in British Columbia’s answer to the Napa Valley. Just outside Vancouver, in the lush agricultural land that surrounds the city, growing numbers of boutique wineries are springing up. The quality of their small batch productions is fast cementing the area’s reputation as the new one to watch in the wine world.
Spend a fun and relaxing day touring the country and sampling these wonderful wines. Stops include Wellbrook Winery, with its turn of the century feel, featuring many fruit wines from locally grown strawberries, blackberries and cranberries. Move on to River’s Bend Winery, on the banks of Serpentine River, where grapes are grown using natural farming methods. Township 7 Vineyards and Winery uses a minimalist, artisanal approach in their classic French vinifera vineyards. Take advantage of fabulous discounts at Domaine de Chaberton Estate Winery, sip a glass of bubbly at Backyard Vineyards and learn about organic wine production at Lotusland Vineyards.
As this is a private tour you can travel at your own pace. So if you want to linger over your gourmet lunch, served in the shadow of the mountains, you can. This tour is simply the best way to experience the fantastic wines, fresh air and wide-open spaces of beautiful British Columbia.
