Labelled “Canada’s Provence” by the late, distinguished foodie, James Barber, our special corner of the world is a fertile trifecta of warm growing conditions, rich soil, and abundant rolling hills.
The region was coined Cowichan or “Warm Land” by First Nations, fittingly: with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters, it is Canada’s only Maritime-Mediterranean climate. Consistent warm, dry summer days ensure phenolic ripeness, while coastal influence and overall latitude equate to persistent acid and freshness in the fruit. Mostly dry styles and grape varietals from places like Northern Germany, France, Switzerland and some created just for this region.
