British Columbia's Fraser Valley is a diverse and gorgeous region which has a great climate for dairy farming as well as for winemaking. When most people refer to wine tasting in Vancouver they mainly focus on visiting the Fraser Valley wine region which is centralized around Langley BC.
Located only 45-50 minutes by car from downtown Vancouver, these Langley wineries are the heart of the Fraser Valley wine region. The Fraser Valley Wine region is also referred to as the Campbell Valley Wine Route.
As a relatively wetter and colder climate than most well known wine regions across North America the top grape varieties grown across the region are Pinot Gris, Bacchus, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and anything Foch (Marachel).
This is probably one of the most under rated wineries in Vancouver. This beautiful little property not only has a winery but events that go on through the year. If checking it out in the fall you'll want to take the tractor ride over to the sunflower maze.
The winery has an indoor and outdoor tasting area as well as an outdoor patio. Grab a meat and cheese board and your favourite glass of wine and sit down after your tasting. If you are paying attention you'll even see the goats just over the bush from where you are sitting. Enjoy!
Township 7 received it's name because it was the 7thfarm that was licensed in the township of Langley. Township 7 is a family owned and managed winery that is famous for its production of the small lots of handcrafted and award-winning wines made from some very carefully chosen grapes. The grapes are grown on property and also their sister winery in the Okanagan which lies approximately four hours north. The full wine portfolio is a great mix of different types of wines and is sure to have something for everyone!
Backyard Winery is often a fan favourite of the Langley wineries. Backyard is renowned for both theirNosey Neighbor White and Red wine bends. It is a nice place to visit with some great service and a really calm atmosphere and has a friendly, warm, and romantic setting. We dare you to not walk away with a few purchased bottles of the wonderful wines. Backyard Winery also has some really amazing charcuterie boards. A stop here can be approximately 60 to 70 minutes if you wish to order food, even longer if you wish to tour the property. With over 10 acres of grapes grown on site as well as a full wine making facility there is lots to look at. Always a fan favourite at Backyard Winery in Langley.
Glass House is one of the newest wineries in the Fraser Valley Wine region. Growing much of their own grapes they also bring in grapes from the Okanagan. This is a world-class tasting room with a really elegant outdoor space Always worth the visit and only 7-minute drive from Fraser Valley Cider, Backyard Winery and Chaberton Winery. If making reservations for food book a few week ahead of time as it's popular and quickly sells out.
Tip - You can even buy a few items and eat them outside on in the picnic area.
Unique farm-style winery about 5 minutes west of Chaberton Winery. Vista does not only make great wine but has award-winning jams you can taste (Often free of charge or with a wine tasting). Perfect for medium to large tours the winery has a nice porch style outdoor space.
The newest addition to the Fraser Valley Wine route this home-style winery has wines at every price range. The closest winery to town it's always worth a visit while on the way to the Fraser Valley Wineries or on the way home. Try wines ranging from $20 to $250 per bottle. This is an amazing "Urban Winery" where everything is on site except for the grapes growing on the vines. Always worth the visit.
The farther your venture into the Fraser Valley the better your day becomes. This award winning winery is always woth the venture. Great wines and great people.
Every wine route needs a Cider House and this is our favorite. Fraser Valley cider has a great team of people in their tasting room there to show you how fantastic cider can be. If putting together a tour with Canadian Craft Tours it's worth swapping out a winery for Fraser Valley Cider. Everyone loves it.
