Averill Creek Vineyard organizes and attends a number of wine events throughout the year -
from Pinot Noir parties, educational workshops, to wine club member only events.
We hope you can join us.
On This Harvest Moon
Celebrating the Cowichan Valley’s autumn bounty with local farmers, Averill Creek wines, camaraderie and libation.
Join us Saturday, September 14th to spur on the oncoming harvest… under the harvest moon, of course. Help us celebrate this momentous occasion in the vineyard at our cocktail-style party on the terrace, featuring a variety of paired dishes from Chef Lauren Cartmel of Ma Maison Restaurant.
We are firm believers that what grows together, goes together: Each food station will highlight a different Cowichan Valley farmer, paired with a wine by Averill Creek.
Your ticket includes dinner, wine pairings (including first-taste of a new release) and good company.
An open-air event from 6pm onwards.
