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.

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

B.C. wine being good was still a relatively new thing to people, and while we had more than a handful of skeptics through the doors in those days, there were some who were enthusiastic for any opportunity to discover more and more of the ever-improving wines our province was offering.
