Things To Do: Wineries

The nutrient-rich soil of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands produces wines of tremendous quality which is helping BC gain its reputation as the “Napa Valley of the North”. It is clear, to us locals, that none of these fine wines would exist without the combined talents and experience of the vintners and winemakers of the area. Cheers to you all!
