A mild, Mediterranean-like climate and an abundance of fertile land are just two of the factors that have helped Cowichan become what renowned foodie James Barber referred to as “Canada’s Provence”.

Other factors include many gifted farmers and culinary artisans, some of whom have chosen to move here just for the opportunity to be in a world class milieu.

Certainly, if you choose to visit here, you will have the chance to eat and drink extremely well! Wineries, cideries, distilleries and breweries dot the landscape, all of which supply the growing number of fine restaurants, bistros and bakeries.
