VANCOUVER ISLAND is often referred to as the "Napa of the North"! A variety of small boutique-like producers have made Victoria famous for its locally made beers, ciders, wines and spirits.
Through GLOBAL VILLAGE VICTORIA, you can enroll in a variety of English programs at the school. To have a complete Vancouver Island experience, combine it with an add-on tour to some of the unique wineries, cideries or breweries in the Cowichan Valley and Saanich Peninsula.
WINE & CIDER: Discover some of the Island's best hard ciders and wines at estates nestled alongside our local country roads. The warm hospitality of the local vintners reflects the easy going island lifestyle – where they are happy to share their passion, knowledge and expertise with visitors.
BEER: You will have the opportunity to explore the city's brewing culture, learn about the brewing process and get a behind- the-scenes look at the workings of a brewery! And of course you will be able to enjoy some of the many excellent brews with a delicious meal at one of many Victoria bistros.
Tours occur on the weekends.
