Salt Spring Vineyards

Who doesn't enjoy the odd little-summer-island-hopping-road-trip, with a spontaneous wine tasting thrown in for good measure? Salt Spring Vineyards, located 9 km south of Ganges, is the perfect visit. Wine tastings here are friendly and informative, as well as complimentary.

The outdoor bistro tables and chairs provide a spectacular setting, complete with a view overlooking the vineyard itself; a great place to sip their wines, which are available for purchase by both the glass and the bottle.

I decided on a bottle of the unoaked chardonnay, which didn’t last long; served that same night back at Neil and Gintari’s house, with grilled lemon rosemary chicken, fresh green salad from their garden and fresh, local corn on the cob.

Cheers to summer.
