Writing on Canadian Wine by the MWC team Kurtis Kolt (BC), Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson (MB) Jake Skakun (ON), Michelle Bouffard (QB) and various national guest contributors.
Here in Vancouver, we’ve had a record-breaking winter full of torrential rains and more snow than our West Coast capacity can handle. Finally, it’s spring - and as the sun beams a bit brighter and the cherry blossoms bloom, we look to refreshing, lively wines to echo the season.
I was clicking away here on My Wine Canada, and thinking how a selection from British Columbia’s Lang Vineyards, this week’s feature winery offering free shipping when you order six or more bottles, would suit the season so fine.
As holiday gift-giving reaches fever pitch over the next couple weeks, why guess at your friends or family’s sizes to ensure that new sweater will fit, or wonder if they really need a new cutting board? Not only is a great bottle of wine always appreciated this time of year (or really, any time of year), but sometimes a fun bonus with gifting a stellar bottle is that your recipient just may be inclined to share it with you down the road! And, of course, who doesn’t love bubbles? Here are three top Canadian sparkling wines perfect for gift-giving (but you can always feel free to treat yourself to ‘em, as well)! And if you act fast, you can get Lang Vineyards' Sparkling Rosé with free shipping.
Last summer, we ran a Free Wine Shipping Flash Series where every week a different winery from across Canada provided free shipping on any orders of 6 bottles or more. It was so well received that we're doing it again…and continuing it right through to December!
Every Monday, check our homepage banner to see which producer is featured. Then you've got one week to buy your favourite products from that winery or distillery (mixed packs are always encouraged) and get free shipping. By midnight on Sunday, the deal will be gone.
When you sign up for our newsletter, you will always get a hint the week before about which producer will be the next featured free shipper (you can sign up at the bottom of any page on this site). A word of wisdom, when your favourite producers are featured take advantage of the free shipping deal and stock up because once a producer's week is up, you won't see them come around again.

A few months ago I wrote about how I was getting into Angela Liddon’s Oh She Glows cookbook. I’ve dog-eared many a page and enjoyed making a good handful of her plant-based recipes, and while I still go to it often, I’ve had to make room on the shelf for her newest book, Oh She Glows Every Day. Again, her recipes are simple and easy to follow, delicious and nutrient-rich, too. Taking advantage of the free shipping deal from Lang Vineyards that's on right now, I'll be pairing an outstanding vegan curry with one of Lang's best wines. Continue reading
It’s a name that has been synonymous with Okanagan Valley winegrowing for over 25 years now. Located on BC's coveted Naramata Bench, Lang Vineyards celebrated their silver jubilee in 2015, and have recently released a handful of wines that were made during those celebrations. It’s been a fascinating quarter-century for sure, beginning with Kristina and Guenther Lang attaining the first-ever Farm Gate Winery license in 1989 after growing grapes since 1980, which enabled them to start their own winemaking operation.
If you’ve never tried their wines, or if it’s been a long time, now is a great time to give them a whirl. If you join My Wine Canada’s Wine Club by tomorrow (Sept. 15), you’ll get a curated selection of Lang Vineyards wine delivered to your door! Continue reading
We've got lots to celebrate today! There's the big win for the Broncos in the Super Bowl last night. Plus today marks the start of Chinese Lunar New Year - Gong Hey Fat Choy and cheers to the Year of the Monkey!

Here's what we've got for you, friends! Continue reading
