About Nestled in the foothills of Mill Bay, surrounded by pasture and minutes away from the Pacific Ocean, lies Unsworth Vineyards. The winery’s pristine Cowichan Valley setting provides the perfect coastal climate for growing some of the world's finest and most unique wine grapes. Panoramic views, a relaxed ambiance and seasonal entertainment combine to make Unsworth Vineyards an essential stop on any wine tour.

Next to the winery’s tasting bar, a 119-year old farm house has been beautifully renovated to accommodate an award-winning restaurant, a casual and elegant bistro serving natural local foods.  Visitors and locals alike are invited to experience the terroir cuisine of the Cowichan Valley through cooking classes, chef’s discussions overlooking the vineyard, and garden tours among the heritage apple and walnut trees in the winery’s orchard.
