This fall one of Conde Nast's reader's best hotels in Canada, The Magnolia Hotel & Spa, has produced a perfect pairing of wine country by day and boutique hotel by night with its Grape Escape package. The offer pairs up the best of Vancouver Island wineries, cideries and farms with a boutique hotel stay in this exclusive fall getaway package.

Victoria and Vancouver Island's fall season is one of the best times of the year for a getaway. The days are warm while the nights are crisp and clear, summer crowds have gone, and prices also start to relax. And grapes vines are bursting, awaiting a fall harvest.

In fact, Victoria and the surrounding Lower Island are home to over 20 BC vineyards in the Cowichan Valley and Saanich Peninsula regions and boast some of the hottest wineries BC and Canada have to offer, bringing home 21 medals in 13 different categories at the 2010 All-Canadian Wine Championships.

"Pairing up the natural beauty of Vancouver Island Island wine country by day with a premium boutique hotel experience in the city by night is an experience we're very proud to be able to deliver," says Magnolia Hotel and Spa general manager, Bill Lewis.

Upon check-in guests are given the tools necessary for their self-guided excursion into wine country: a welcome basket complete with a bottle of local wine, maps and recommendations on how to make the most of their stay. Wine country is just 45 minutes away, and idyllic locations like Godfrey Brownell, with its outdoor tasting bar and patio, and Zanatta Winery, with its Vinoteca restaurant and wine bar, offer up a scenic and memorable BC wine country experience.

Guests return to The Magnolia Hotel & Spa, set in amongst the city's best restaurants, shops and entertainment, and experience the kind of undistracted, unmatched service only experienced in a boutique hotel with just 64 rooms.

The package also includes a $100 voucher to enjoy in Prime Steakhouse & Lounge or to indulge in a treatment at Spa Magnolia.

Adventure, luxury, a beautiful city, self-guided tours of estate vineyards, boutique shopping, fabulous food and a tranquil stay are the key ingredients which make The Magnolia Hotel & Spa and Victoria a perfect pairing for a Grape Escape.

The two-night package starts at $229 per night. For details visit www.magnoliahotel.com or call 1-877-624-6654 from anywhere in the continental USA or Canada.
