Langley Wineries: Vista D’Oro, Neck of the Woods, Township 7

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver event planner Marc Smith recently made a career change and has taken on a bold challenge while he realigns his professional goals. He’s decided to create 30 Day Adventures, a blogging initiative that has him experiencing a new adventure around Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley daily from June 1st to July 1st.

Langley Wineries

While this is Marc’s first time writing blog posts every single day (complete with photos and video), he’s no stranger to social media. He’s actively looking for adventures to complete and document this month and has been welcoming suggestions online. My idea was to do a local wine tour so Marc made a few calls and we set out for Langley yesterday morning.

Our Host: Cindy Murphy, Retail Manager
Highlights: Learning about Township’s many events and how they are the official wine of the Calgary Stampede. Cottonwood fluff floated around us like snowflakes on the wind and we ended the day at the picnic table on the lawn chatting with the ladies from Stimuli Magazine who stopped by for a visit.

Each winery was a completely different experience but there was one common thread — they all care deeply about the community and their craft. At the end of the day Marc and I jested about returning to Vista D’Oro with marshmallows to roast on the fire pit we spotted on the 10-acre property. With rolling pastures and views of majestic Golden Ears, we took a day to escape the city and enjoy the country.

The rest of my photos from the day are available on my Flickr set. If you have a suggestion for Marc, submit it online as he still has a few weeks to go in his 30 Day Adventures campaign.

    Vista D’Oro’s fortified walnut wine is divine!
