    Area Data

    The Cowichan Valley is a region around the Cowichan River, Cowichan Bay and Cowichan Lake on Vancouver Island. The Cowichan Valley is the home of a growing number of vineyards and wineries. They include Unsworth Vineyards, Cherry Point Vineyards, Blue Grouse, Glenterra, Vigneti Zanatta, Venturi-Schulze, and Averill Creek. The warm, dry summers and mild, moist winters make this area part of Canada's only maritime Mediterranean climate, providing good growing conditions for many grape varietals.

    The Cowichan River is world famous for its trout, steelhead, and salmon fishing.

    Vegetation

    Southwest Coast with Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar although there are other significant stands of alder and maple within the “Coastal Douglas-fir” zone. Arbutus trees are also found in some drier regions. Salal, ferns, mosses, and a variety of berry bushes cover the forest floor as do many edible mushrooms.

    Recreation

    Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, golfing, swimming, winey touring.

    History

    The Cowichan peoples have lived here for millennia; with the settlement of Vancouver Island, life for them changed forever. By 1858, Vancouver Island was British controlled but it was in danger of being lost to the Americans due to the influx of people seeking their fortune in the Gold Rush. In order to encourage settlement, land could be acquired cheaply through pre-emption.
