I recently visited several Circle Farm Tour stops with Tourism Langley that covered everything from turkeys to blueberry doughnuts. Three additional stops on this free, self-guided tour in Langley include the wineries. While most think of the Okanagan as BC’s wine country, these have been around for the better part of the last decade. Some are supplemented with vines on the Naramata Bench, but these local wineries deliver reds, whites, and sparkling varietals just 45 minutes away from Vancouver.
Wineries in Langley, BC
Vista D’Oro Farms & Winery
Located in South Langley overlooking Campbell Valley Park and Golden Ears Mountain Range. Stop by the new shop, pick up a bottle of wine, grab picnic fare from the kitchen (such as a cheese plate with local products, fresh baking, preserves) and sit out under the walnut trees for a picnic. Try some of their flagship walnut-fortified 2007 D’oro wine for something different.
Location: 20856 4th Ave

Have lunch or dinner at the award-winning Bacchus Bistro or bring a picnic to the winery.
