Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Take your time to discover Vancouver Island's Cowichan Valley: a warm land rich with picturesque vineyards and stunning west-coast vistas. Picnic on the terrace at Averill Creek, sunbathe on the resplendent Blue Grouse patio, and top off your visit with an unforgettable meal at Unsworth's award-winning restaurant.
    On your own private Tesla Tour, you set the pace as you are transported into the future of luxury by the serenely-quiet, sporty comfort of our Signature Red Tesla Model S 85: Burgundár, the world's first fully-electric, solar-powered* touring sedan.
    Our full-day Cowichan Valley Wine Tasting is the most sumptuous of sustainable tours: enjoy privately-guided tastings at three award-winning vineyards in Canada's newest terroir. Enjoy the serenely-quiet, sporty luxury of our Signature Series Tesla Model S, knowing our solar panels have already generated enough electricity for over 50,000 km of touring, and relax while your local guide and professional driver takes care of the details, sharing our knowledge & passion about Cowichan's wines, artisans, and the history of Vancouver Island's 'Warm Land.'
    Your 6-hour Tesla Tour will visit three Cowichan Valley vineyards of your choice, including wine tasting at each and plenty of time for a leisurely picnic or restaurant meal.
