Before we took a brief break for our holiday in the Mediterranean, I was invited by Jelly Marketing to experience the Langley Passport Wine Route. It is a new program that encourages visitors to check out the seven wineries in Langley. Yes, there are indeed 7 wineries in Langley. I knew about 5 of them prior to this tour — in fact, I visited 3 of them just three years ago — so some were new to me and I was quite excited about visiting them. Especially after our wine getaway in Oliver this summer (see Part 1 and Part 2 here), I was keen to find out what’s available much closer to home.

The premise of the program is quite straightforward. You pick up a copy of the passport at any of the participating wineries or partner hotels in Langley, then you take your time to visit each winery, get a stamp after each visit, and then you will be entered into a draw for some great prizes. Don’t worry, you don’t have to visit them all on the same day, because that would be quite irresponsible to ask you to drink that much in one day. Well, we did on the tour, but we had the luxury of travelling on a coach bus.

First stop, Township 7. Manager Jason gave us a background on Township and explained each wine in detail. We tried 2 whites and 4 reds, including a barrel sample of the Black Dog, which is a wine club exclusive with limited availability (only 118 cases).

After a fun day out in the Fraser Valley, we stopped at Fort Pub and Grill for some food and drinks. It’s a nice, stand-alone establishment close to where the Albion Ferry terminal used to be, at the north tip of Fort Langley.

Food

In addition to food, we ordered a mini jug of Strongbow Cider. It’s about half the size of a pitcher, fills perhaps 2 pint glasses, and was recently priced at about $12.

We ordered two things. First, Fort Poutine isn’t only about fries, cheese curds and gravy. It included some spicy ground beef, sauteed onions and mushrooms, which added extra flavours to the otherwise ordinary poutine.

The Personal Pizza actually has similar toppings as the Fort Poutine. (more…)
