The Fraser Valley

Encompassing Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, New Westminster to Delta, Langley, Aldergrove and Abbotsford in the east, the Fraser Valley wine region is dedicated to producing high quality, handcrafted wines with diverse varieties and styles: from unique fruit wines to delicious sparkling wines to fresh, fruit-forward table wines to fortified.

Proximity to countless urban households makes the Fraser Valley wine region the ideal destination for day trips. Your visit won’t be limited to only wine tastings, however. Several wineries offer food experiences such as farm tours and bistro dining.
