Muse Wineery Saanich Peninsula North of Victoria BC

Our lunch arrives and the presentation is spectacular, so we quickly take some photos and then dig in to these culinary delights. Each bite brings a new burst of flavour. The Bistro Muse bills itself as an intimate alfresco open- air dining patio. The weather is over 25C, the sky is pure blue, we are nestled right against the vineyard, we have great food in our hands and good wine in our glasses –it seems more like heaven. The Muse Bistro has indoor dinning space as well but on a day like this the patio is perfect. As we enjoy our incredible lunch, the flow of guests is steady. Many take a seat for lunch and some just stop for a wine tasting. It is $5.00 for five wines at the tasting bar. We shared a couple to tasting plates to get a good feel for what was available at the Bistro. One was a selection of local cheeses and meats paired with delectable compotes, Little Qualicum Spice Cheese, Rosenborg Blue Cheese with Pear, Pinot Gris Salami and Prosciutto, Comox Valley Brie and Elk Salami. The other plate, The Muse Trio, had three fabulous tarts, a layered candied salmon tart with mascarpone cheese and lemon zest, a caramelized onion tart with gorgonzola and thyme drizzled with balsamic vinegar glaze. The final of this trio was a spectacular dark chocolate panache with raspberry coulis. Have I got your attention yet? This is an excerpt from an article on the Muse Winery just 20 minutes north of Victoria. Don't miss this winery and bistro. It is exceptional and what a setting!
