The Red Chair’s visit to the Cowichan Region was nearing an end but there were a few more stops to make before he departed for Victoria. Just down the road from his home away from home at Cobble House B&B, Red and innkeeper Ingrid stopped by for a tour and tasting at Unsworth Vineyards. Marketing […]

The Red Chair’s next day of exploring the Cowichan Valley included wine tasting, birds of prey and cider tasting. The day started with a visit to Blue Grouse Estate Winery with its beautiful new tasting room.  The sun peeked out as Office Manager Jenny showed Red around. He especially enjoyed the view from the upstairs […]

The Red Chair arrived at Cobble House Bed & Breakfast on February 26th.  Meeting up with previous hosts from Hawley Place Bed & Breakfast at the Cowichan Regional Visitor Centre by the Forest Discovery Centre (which is unfortunately not yet open for the season), we took Red into the Visitor Centre for some background information […]
