This is a super, little, family-owned vineyard on Vancouver Island making excellent European style wines. We had a great time sitting on their little terrace tasting their wines and eating their delicious breads and cheeses. Just the sort of vineyard we love to visit with the personal touch.

A little background information, I have never been to a vineyard or attended any wine tasting, so I was EXTREMELY excited. My boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary and were really wanting to make our trip to Victoria very special. I did tons of research into choosing a vineyard to spend some time at. I read all the reviews on Tripadvisor for Symphony vineyard and various vineyards within driving distance of Victoria. I had extremely high hopes for Symphony Vineyard. I definitely enjoy white and light reds, my boyfriend was there for the experience. Upon arrival to Symphony we were not warmly greeted, the lady pouring the wines even commented how she hoped it wasn't going to be busy and that everyone should be at Symphony Splash. I really tried to foster some conversation with her, I had read such amazing things about this vineyard! Truly, had I not read all the reviews we would not know what to do about the self-serve deli, or eating in the sitting area. As we were leaving, my boyfriend tried to chat with the lady again. She was not very engaging. I don't want to end this review on completely bad note. The vineyard itself is gorgeous. It is tucked away, about a 30min drive from downtown Victoria. Upon entry, there is a little bar area where you taste the wines. Choose a bottle (or two), fill your picnic basket from the self-serve deli and then head out into the sunlight! The sitting area where you can enjoy your picnic is absolutely gorgeous.

Hello - Thanks for the review. Glad you enjoyed the wine and the garden. You must have missed our info on the deli - it's on the sign as you go in the door - and of course everyone's questions are very welcome. Yes, to the less busy - it's nice for everyone given our small space. As for Symphony Splash - it is a very special event for Victoria :) !

What a nice place Symphony has! Beautiful picnic/wine-enjoyment area behind the tasting room. Taste their excellent barrel-aged Pinot Gris that is designed for red drinkers. The Pinot noir was nice, but unremarkable. And the Foch was a red I’d certainly buy in a local restaurant or bring home if I were in this area. And they’re at the right price points. Lovely couple who appear to be the proprietors - he grows ‘em, and she’s the winemaker. All wines are 100% local grapes.

This is a magical place to visit even if you're not fond of wine however if you are fond of good wine then this is a must! To begin with the drive north on West Saanich Road then Oldfield Road is delightful all on its own. Put the top down if you can and turn up your tunes as you wind your way past picturesque fields, wildflowers and blossoming cherry trees, horses and sheep grazing. Dream a little about the possibilities of selling everything and buying a small rural property with all of the above. When you arrive at Symphony Vineyard you will be greeted by two of the most welcoming and knowledgeable vintners you're likely to meet anywhere. Enjoy a tasting of their latest offerings with the knowledge that the grapes used are all locally grown and they know a tremendous amount about all of their processes. I recommend that you stay for a picnic on their amazing patio overlooking the vineyard, as it is picturesque beyond words at every stage of growth. The vineyard offers local cheeses, meats, veggies, pickles and relishes made at the vineyard. They will provide a warm mini baguette to round out your lunch and of course whatever wine has captured your interest, by the glass or bottle. As you sit on the grassy patio under the grand shade tree or under an umbrella it is so easy to linger with thoughts of similar Provençal experiences. The garden flower pots complete the experience and if you can leave the vineyard without a bottle or two of their fabulous wine you are a much better person than I. Highly recommended. Go often.

Thank you for your lovely review. We love the Oldfield valley and all our rural landscapes in Saanich! Its so easy to fill our deli with local cheeses, charcuterie, baguettes and produce - we are so appreciative of the ability to do that. We've got so many folks doing a great job of farming in Saanich, and every farmer appreciates your visit to buy local - so thank you again!

We went to Symphony as part of a wine tour. We enjoyed all the wineries but this by far was our favorite. We loved the small, intimacy of this local winery. We were greeted warmly and we sat out on the porch with a gorgeous view of the vineyard in a beautiful garden/patio setting. The flowers were so lovely. We were treated to a tray of delicious snacks (not sure if that was part of the tour) but they also had a lot of choices of local foods to purchase to create a basket of goodies to enjoy along with some wonderful wines. Our hostess was so gracious and informative during our tasting. She answered all our questions but allowed us to just relax and enjoy the wines and view. We were lucky to meet the owner who was just as friendly. It is a quaint winery with wonderful wines. We all bought a couple of bottles to take home and enjoy.
