This award helps to solidify Blue Grouse Estate Winery as a leader in the Cowichan Valley, not only for winemaking, but also as a destination that must not be missed. The new facility that opened last May continues to be a sought-after hot spot for visitors to sample wines and hold events, picnics and family adventures.

This award was initiated through the recommendation of Blue Grouse visitors in the past year, and then a panel of judges selected the Luxury Travel Awards winners based on their achievements and strengths in the travel industry. Winners are chosen when they have demonstrated success and innovation throughout the assessed criteria.

Adding this award to their growing repertoire of accolades, the Blue Grouse team is ready to welcome guests, whether they are looking to taste delicious wines or embark on a new chapter of their own, by hosting their wedding or event on location at the vineyard and winery.
