Another reason to live/move to the Cowichan Valley is the many world class wineries that provide amazing local wines and wonderful location for our many visitors. As a Realtor I am always gifting local wines not only to support our local producers but also because the wines are great. Some of my favorite wineries are: Blue Grouse, Unsworth, Averill Creek and Zanatta. Many wineries also have restaurants and beautiful sampling rooms. Many locals and visitors enjoy doing wine tours either on their own or using local touring companies. Make sure your next visit to the Cowichan Valley includes winery touring, you will not be disappointed.
