When you think of B.C. wine country, you're probably thinking about the Okanagan, but that's not the only place you'll find. There's a secret winery on Vancouver Island that B.C. has been keeping secret, and you can actually stay right on their vineyard. This unique winery stay in B.C. makes the ultimate friend group trip if you love to relax and sip the night away.
Blue Grouse, near Duncan on Vancouver Island, makes some of the best B.C. wine west of the Okanagan. Their "Grouse House" is adorable and it's perfect for your next B.C. getaway.
The space is a two-bedroom vineyard-level suite that sleeps four. That means it's perfect for splitting with another couple and your s/o or just with a group of friends.
You'll get the entire space all to yourself, so it's quiet, peaceful, and cozy. It's definitely a unique B.C. staycation you won't forget. It has floor-to-ceiling windows and a breathtaking view.
When you want to wander off the property, you'll find the impressive Kinsol Trestle — a 100-year-old decommissioned bridge meant for trains.
Plus, it's about an hour away from Victoria so you can check out the provincial capital in the same trip.
Imagine waking up on a vineyard and having a little picnic overlooking the grapes.
Plus, their wines sell out every year, so you know you're going to pop some amazing bottles. You even get a free bottle when you check-in.
Grouse House also has a massive panoramic patio outside. There's even a barbeque so you can cook your own meals al fresco.
Because you have to stay for at least two days, this is the ideal weekend getaway if you want to go wine tasting and explore Vancouver Island.
Price Per Night: $600
Neighbourhood: Cowichan Bay, B.C.
Why You Need To Go: Stay right on the vineyard and enjoy unique B.C. wines on Vancouver Island with your BFFs.
