The Summer of 2022 has been one big wine festival in the Cowichan Valley.
June was wine passport month.
Now comes the August 4th Wine Festival Launch Party. BECAUSE August is Wine Month in the Cowichan Valley!!
The kick-off took place on the superb beachfront lawn at Brentwood College, Mill Bay.
With the help and support of Corey Wood and Jill Nessel, I was able to taste with and talk to:
