A Trip to Wine Country…
June 4, 2011 § 1 Comment
With the sunshine beaming in the air, this reminds all that summer is just a few weeks away from approaching us with scorching temperatures, sunburns & spare time. Leaving everyone in the Fraser Valley wondering what to do on a beautiful & breath taking Saturday.
Many of us forget that we do not have to travel far to taste the luscious taste of hand crafted wine. A trip to wine country is closer than many may think, close enough without leaving your neighborhood. With the abundance of cranberries, blueberries & raspberries in the valley the Fort Wine Co. founded in 2001 started with just a cranberry wine & 10 years later they now offer customers a wide variety of 11 different wines while supporting local berry farmers and fruit farmers across British Columbia.
The unique part of the wine that is produced by the Fort Wine Co. is all their wines are grape free and are made from local British Columbia fruit. The winery offers a amazing up close experience from wine tastings with decadent cheese platters to drinking under the sun sipping away at fresh sangria’s.
The Fort Wine Co. is open till 6pm 7 days a week, and offers customers to sample 3 of their wines for free! Also offered is the chance to try their full menu of wines as while as their dessert wines for only $5.00. The winery also offers tours and event hosting.
This unique experience, is closer to home than most may think. A afternoon tasting decadent wines measures up close to a long drive to tour the wine fields in the Okanagan.
