“Wine is one of the most cultivated things in the world…
…and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.” – Ernest Hemingway
Visiting a vineyard has always been a pleasant past time of mine. Here in Vancouver we have a few local wineries a little bit off the beaten path. Last month I re visited Township 7 (in the 7th Township of Langley, off the highway in the Fraser Valley area) with a friend.
I tried to locate a Township 7 Merlot that was part of a Christmas gift basket but everyone that previously had it in stock was sold out. After exhausting my search I decided to go directly to the source – Township 7 in Langley. Their other location (Naramata Bench in the beautiful Okanagan Valley) was several more hours away by car.
Once there we ended up doing a tasting.
Once finished we ended up becoming wine club members. Which means that every season we’ll be getting drunk several bottles shipped to us. Which means that by Spring/Summer we’re certain to be in the red. Other than that, we’re always white and bubbly.
I look forward to further introducing your senses to BC wine along with the art, culture and culinary experiences brought together by knowledgeable people and others who like to indulge appreciate good wine and good times. Life is meant to be relished.
Have a great weekend.
