We all know that Victoria is the craft beer hub of BC, but did you know that Victoria also has some very distinguished (and delicious!) wineries? From sassy bottle art to decadent dessert wines, these spots are sure to please.

 

Church and State Winery

1445 Benvenuto Avenue

Known for their iconic collection entitled “Lost Inhibitions”, Church and State winery brings you red and white blends in crass and crude bottles.  Looking for the perfect gift? Why not give someone a bottle of “I’d Shave my Legs for You” or “Shut the Front Door!”. Church and State has a second location in the Okanagan Valley.

 

Dragonfly Hill Vineyard

6130 Old West Saanich Road

Dragonfly Hill offers a delicious selection of wines and ports for any of you out there with a sweet tooth! They take yummy local fruits and incorporate them into their stock, advertising with tasting notes of “100% local” and “like grandma’s best berry pie”.

 

De Vine Vineyards

6181B Old West Saanich Road

Juggling both wine and spirits, De Vine Vineyards takes on every challenge and succeeds with flying colours! Come down to their tasting room, open daily until 5pm and feel free to bring your kids and/or pets. Enjoy delicious beverages in an inclusive and open environment.
Symphony Vineyard

6409B Oldfield Rd

Although closed for the winter season, Symphony Vineyard must be put on your radar for this summer. Symphony works with local charities and corporations to develop delicious vino AND save the world! We highly recommend you taste the Fireman’s Red – $10 from the sale of each bottle goes towards the Saanich Fire Charitable Foundation that aids in community initiatives.

 

We could not conclude this post without mentioning Duncan, BC. Duncan is home to a number of fantastic wineries, so if you find yourself up Island, make sure to enjoy a wine tour.
