A great meal starts with the perfect glass of wine and the Summit Restaurant at the Villa Eyrie Resort is pleased to announce the introduction of our new Wine Society, which will inevitably start a new chapter of wine culture on Vancouver Island. Here’s your opportunity to learn more about selecting the right wines to pair with your dinners. Or, perhaps you are interested in the viticulture of wines from different countries or regions. No matter the reason, we invite you to join our wine pairing series to enjoy exceptional food paired with great wines and the company of like-minded individuals at one unforgettable venue.
A top the forested heights of the Malahat ridge overlooking the picturesque Saanich Inlet is an incredible and sophisticated dining experience that elevates your palate like no other. The Summit Restaurant at the Villa Eyrie Resort captures both flavour and inspiration from it’s Italian west-coast inspired menu and décor.
We are proud to have multiple award-winning Executive Chef, Terry Pichor lead our culinary team with freshly cultivated and farm-sourced ingredients to create rustic flavoured menu choices from around the world. Through his travels, Terry has developed unique techniques that have added to his culinary works of art. Sourcing from only the best farm fresh ingredients Vancouver Island has to offer, Chef Terry, and our sommeliers have developed the perfect selection of food and wine pairings for our Wine Society Social 5-course food and wine pairings at the Summit Restaurant.
Wine culture is more than matching vintages to the meals we enjoy. It is a way to show recognition of the environment where the grapes grow and the diverse culture surrounding the vintner. The perfect paring of wine to the foods we prepare becomes an elegant meld of these values to enhance your palate with an immersive understanding of all their origins.
The Villa Eyrie Resort and the Wine Society’s purpose is to bring together appreciators of viticulture and fine cuisine. Whether you’re new to wine or an expert sommelier, this new society will introduce everyone to priceless knowledge and a deeper appreciation for the wines from around the world.

On Friday June 2nd we celebrated the warm weather with our Napa Valley inspired Wine Society Social. The occasion called for a giant 9L bottle of Schramsberg, Blanc de Blanc Brut Sparkling Wine. As we poured the savoury drink into our glasses, the night began with strangers coming together to enjoy a delicious meal, and ended with new friends.
