I was very impressed by the presentation and knowledge of the lady giving the wine tasting. I thought I knew quite a bit about wine tasting but there was so much more that I learned than before. I am comfortable bring my friends and family there. The wine was good and the atmosphere really pleasant as well as the surroundings.... More

I was very impressed with the knowledge of the staff. Picked up 4 bottles of the 2015 Pinot Noir, which has had great reviews. If you go in the Spring/Summer, buy a bottle and enjoy it on the patio overlooking the vineyard.

Beautiful location and enjoyed the patio on a warm fall day, with a view down the valley to the water. The tasting was brilliant and informative and we bought 6 bottles to cellar... If they last that long!

Lovely views from the patio. You can bring a picnic, buy some wine and enjoy it on the patio. Estate produced wines of very good quality. Very convenient if you're driving south to Victoria.

We have been several times, most recently this past month, to Averill Creek. Bring your picnic, enjoy the wine tasting, buy some wine and sit, chat, visit and relax on the beautiful (stunning, really) patio and enjoy some of the best wine and views of the Cowichan Valley. Pretty much a yearly tradition with us now!
