For award-winning BC VQA wines in a fantastic local setting, look no further than Backyard Vineyards in the Township of Langley—the spacious, bountiful backyard to Vancouver, British Columbia.
Since 2009, Backyard Vineyards has been producing award-winning varietals, blended, and bubbly wines from 100% BC grapes grown on-site in their own vineyard and complemented with fruit selected from the Fraser Valley and South Okanagan.
Enjoy sipping their wines in your own backyard, or let their vineyard (located just a 45 minute drive east of Vancouver) be the perfect backdrop for a private tasting or event in their tasting room and under the gazebo.
The tasting room is cool all summer long, and when winter sets in, it’s a perfectly cozy gathering place. Drop in for a wine tasting and stay awhile with friends to enjoy some wine and one of their platters. Their tasting room is an ideal venue to seat up to 50 people with mingling room to spare.
Outside in the fresh country air, their log-beamed gazebo is furnished with perfect picnic tables, set against the lush vineyard. The gazebo is home to the Backyard Bell, acquired from a working farm dating back to 1882. Once used to signal mealtime, its ring now just means “more wine please!”
There is a lot to learn on a guided tour of the vineyard and winery production area at Backyard Vineyards. As a full production winery, the activity is always changing throughout the year depending on the day of the week and time of year you stop by.
Backyard Vineyards is open year-round, 7-days a week to welcome you. Be sure to ask about their Porch Wine Club while you’re there!
