It takes some planning but we have been having larger groups come visit since we moved here. Larger group tastings are done outside with some shelter so weather permitting.
Larger group tours from 15 to 45 people. We are just 45 minutes from Victoria or Nanaimo so a great stop for your adventures. We need advance notice to ensure a second person onsite for the group; there is a non-refundable $5 fee per person. However, we always allow a chance to waive the fee after the experience. Your group tour is catered for your tastes. You chose the wines; we can pre-order picnic sandwiches or a charcuterie from local producers with one day's notice. Cheese and candied salmon is always available. Stay and enjoy our wines with the food or you can bring your own picnic to our area. For larger groups, we would encourage your group to enjoy lunch with a glass of wine as it is licenced. This tasting can be done outside.
New this year, we finally are expanding our tasting room to easily accommodate up to 40 people in the new look that we created. It is a modern "speakeasy" concept and we are still waiting for a few things. If you are planning a group tour and want to ensure that you taste in the new area, then mid-April will work. Again, we can still taste outside as our outdoor area is also great. I'll update the website as things progress. The non-refundable fee for larger groups is still in effect in the tasting room. The pre-ordered foods cannot be eaten in the tasting room as per our licence.
Due to the logistics of our winery and a lot of our events are done outside, we are not accepting weddings on our site yet. We do have our local wines available for your event if you wish.
