Dining at a winery this summer is a must! The food is all local with lots of produce and herbs coming right from the backyard gardens on the property. Plus, the views are breathtaking that really allow you to escape and enjoy the beauty of British Columbia.
When planning a wine trip this summer, be sure to stop for lunch or dinner at a winery! Below is a list of the top winery restaurants across the Okanagan.
Charcuterie, cheese and vegan boards; wine by the glass or bottle are available to purchase all evening.

Concert in the Vines with Heartwood
Heartwoodis the new and perfect pairing of award-winning singer-songwriters Jack Connolly and Genevieve Charbonneau from our own Cowichan Valley. Jack and Genevieve are outstanding performers in their own right, but when their songwriting talents, charisma and musical chops are combined, the result is roots and folk magic. The duo are joined by a band for this special evening of music.
Kick-off Event, August 23rd: Start the weekend off right and join all the wineries for our evening tasting event at Shawnigan Lake School.
Winery Touring, August 24th – 25th: Spend the rest of the weekend self-touring Cowichan’s fabulous wineries with map and passport in hand. Visit the wineries and collect stamps to fill the passport. Collect all the stamps and you can enter the draw for a grand prize!
Tickets will be available for purchase on the Tourism Cowichan website closer to the event date, or simply purchase a festival glass and passport at your first stop and keep it with you. This glass is your ticket and entitles you to 3 free tastings at all 11 participating wineries!
