Fans of BC wine who don’t want to make a five-hour drive to the Okanagan can stop in the Fraser Valley and visit Vista D’Oro Winery in Langley. As part of Modern Mix Vancouver’s day trip to the Fraser Valley, we made a morning stop to the scenic Vista D’Oro, named after the “View of Gold” as you can see the Golden Ears mountains from its location.
This family-run business consists of teamwork between Patrick and Lee Murphy, a husband and wife duo: Patrick makes the wine, while Lee runs “The Preservatory”, a gourmet food boutique with high-quality artisan preserves which are sold locally and also around the world (including Harrod’s in London!).
A must-try from Vista D’Oro is their nutty dessert-wine, which is fortified with walnut brandy. It makes a great pairing for nut-based dessert or dark chocolate.
For more information about Vista D’oro, visit them in person at: 346-208th Street, Langley, BC, or online at vistadoro.com.
This visit to Vista D’Oro was only a small part of an activity-packed day in the Fraser Valley. Be sure to read Modern Mix Vancouver’s full post on our Fraser Valley day trip!
