Being an old world wine lovers I tended to stay away from BC wines....but was surprised at the wines served at Usworth. They have decided to grow grapes suitable for the cool climate and not try to copy anyone else. Nice wines that are really well priced and bottles have been ordered for home!

Boating in the islands and stopped in Mill Bay and took a mid-day tour of the winery and had lunch at the restaurant. This is an impressive new winery, especially so on their whites. Some unique grapes and delicious wines. Beautiful tasting room and an immaculately kept winery. A great tour and introduction to some terrific wines. And the restaurant... More

As part of a tour organized by Cheers Cowichan Tours, our last stop of the day was at Unsworth Vineyards. We were treated to an interesting and fun tour and tasting. Their wines are delicious so we took home quite a few. We ended the visit by having dinner in the garden of their beautifully restored house, located right across... More

Lovely tasting at the stunning clean beautiful venue. Treated like gold by the lovely man pouring us wine with great conversation and huge amount of wine knowledge. Bought a bottle and had a nice stroll up to the restaurant ..... Should have stayed for a bite.... Next time Will be back!

With out of town guests and a birthday to celebrate we chose Unsworth for a tasting and lunch for 5 people. A very unwelcome feeling in the tasting room, but since we made the trip - we decided to taste anyway. Very small $5 pourings and minimal information from the staff. Almost interpreted as pretentious sarcasm. When I asked the... More

I'm sorry to hear about your negative experience. Please accept my apology. I was barely able to speak and in dire need of water following a staggering number of tour group patrons who had just left prior to your arrival. When asked what I preferred, I joked about desperately needing water. I'm sorry my candid response and attempt at humour... More

We saw incredible reviews of this winery online and we were sadly disappointed. The "pour" wasn't even enough to coat your tongue and the wine was nothing to write home about. The scenery was beautiful, but the wine and service didn't match it!

On a wine tour we usually leave with a few bottles or a case if the experience and wines are to our liking BUT we passed on this winery due to rudeness. When we walked through the door we smiled and said hello to two workers/owners(?) and did not get more than a smile back. They made no attempt to... More

I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Our tasting room staff are all very approachable and outgoing. I am surprised by your experience. We try very hard for all visitors to be greeted with a heartfelt "welcome to Unsworth". When greeted guests don't proceed to the tasting bar and instead peruse the art and merchandise, we usually give them a... More

This is a serious winery. That is, the wine isn't just for tourists. Unsworth wines are distinctive and worthy of a true wine enthusiast's attention. We recently tasted the sparkling wine, the savignin-chardonnay (not sauvignon but savignin, the workhorse white grape of France's Jura region) blend, the pinot noir rose and the cab-merlot blend. We were tasting with a couple... More
