Last Sunday, Jeff and I spent the afternoon in Duncan. After enjoying lunch with our nephew and checking out several furniture shops (in search of dining room chairs), we set out exploring. The Cowichan Valley (in which the town of Duncan is nestled) is Vancouver Island wine country and it didn’t take long in our exploring to come across several vineyards.
I have been to several vinyards in this area before but Jeff had not, and was curious. We stopped at Averill Creek for a tasting, and to pick up some of their award-winning (and delicious) Cowichan Blackberry Port for Christmas. As you can see, it’s a really lovely setting with a spectacular view.
