Cider Circle Tour
Eat, Drink Sea Cider, and Be Merri!
Sip juicy ciders and cocktails at Merridale's farmhouse and distillery in the picturesque Cowichan Valley. Enjoy farm-to-table gourmet treats at the tasting bar, patio, or lounge. Then, travel east across Saanich Inlet to Sea Cider. Stroll through the orchards and enjoy ocean views while relaxing in the farmhouse over a flight of craft ciders. With ciders ranging from English Dry to dessert-styles, there's something for everyone to enjoy on this tour.
Sea Cider (Seacider.ca) and Merridale Ciderworks (Merridale.ca) are two family-friendly agri-tourism businesses passionate about making your visit a cultural and culinary experience to remember.
