Wineries in Langley

You don’t need to travel to the Okanagan to try delicious B.C. wines. Drive less than an hour from Vancouver to Langley and Fort Langley to find some of the Lower Mainland’s best hidden treasures for your wine cellar, or simply enjoy an afternoon of discovery.

Chaberton Estate Winery

1
1064 216th Street, Langley, BC V2Z 1R3

This vast, well-appointed estate could easily be at home nestled into the countryside of Bordeaux. Luckily, it’s much closer to home for B.C. residents. The family-run estate launched in 1981 and has been producing both white and red wines ever since. They now produce more than 20 varieties every year, all from B.C. VQA grapes. Open the wooden tasting room doors to be greeted by friendly staff and a beautiful boutique of bottles and accessories for purchase. The Bacchus Bistro, just next-door, cooks authentic French cuisine and is the ideal spot for a mid-afternoon break, or an intimate dinner.

Township 7 Vineyards & Winery

2
21152 16 Ave, Langley, BC V2Z 1K3

Township 7’s Fraser Valley tasting room is one of two in B.C.; the original is situated in the Naramata Bench of the Okanagan. Those who visit the local version are still in for a treat. A cozy, intimate tasting room matches the Old World style of Township 7’s wines. Larger groups can enjoy a different atmosphere in the larger tasting room with floor-to-ceiling windows and long tables, often used for wine tasting dinners or parties. Offering a range of varietals in both red and white, their wines are a delicious option for varying budgets.

Vista D'Oro Farms & Winery

346 208 Street, Langley, BC V2Z 1T7

To visit this farm and winery is to step into a world of pastoral bliss. See the vines used to create wine, walk around the orchards or bump into a friendly farm cat (or maybe even a chicken). Set on 10 acres, Vista D’oro offers a range of tasting experiences. Visitors can enjoy a tasting session of their wines – such as fortified walnut wine, or pear wine, or pinot noir – or browse the locally produced preserves and snacks at the Farmgate Shop. Budget more time for this location – this is more of an experience than a tasting.

The Fort Wine Co

26151 84 Ave, Langley, BC V1M 3M6

Step into The Fort Wine Company’s tasting room and you’ll be stepping into a more traditional time. The welcome atmosphere features cozy decorations, traditional wood furniture and delightful sundries on display. Their 10 different wine varieties, many from the farm’s own blueberries and cranberries, include red, white and dessert wine, each with sassy names such as “Saucy”, “Cold Snap” and “Bite Me.” Fort Wine also uses its fruit to create gift-perfect wine jellies and balsamic vinegars.

With its unparalleled views, nearby ocean and reflective glass skyscrapers, Vancouver really shines in summertime. When not on the beaches, much of the city sips a mojito or glass of the Okanagan’s finest on a patio. Here are some of the best summer staples and undiscovered spots for catching up on Vitamin D.
If Vancouver’s bar scene is too social or slick for your night-out requirements, these cozy nooks offer a relaxing alternative, and they’re the closest you can come to a true European pub experience on this side of the Atlantic. Check out these laid-back locals for a solo pint or a low-key get-together with friends. [Photo credit: iStock.com/gpointstudio]
Wheel around the alleys of East Van and it won’t be long before you stumble upon one of the city’s craft breweries: on par with yoga studios for their popularity. During Vancouver Craft Beer Week, you can sample more than 300+ different brews (and ciders) from around the world. Check out some of the Vancity breweries that’ll be pulling pints at the festival at the PNE from May 26 to June 4. [Photo via Doan's Craft Brewing]
