Having opened its doors in 1990, BC's first farm gate winery is now celebrating 27 years in the business. Today, Lang Vineyards is one of the most popular boutique wineries on the Naramata Bench and continues to produce high quality, award-winning wine. And what better way to celebrate than by releasing your best wines yet!
We had the pleasure of tasting the Lang Vineyards wine portfolio recently and wanted to share our favourites with you. All the wines listed below are reserved for My Wine Canada wine club packs (many are actually sold out at this point), so join the club this month because you won't be able to find these wines anywhere else.

This tasty white is a blend of largely Riesling and Gewürztraminer, with Muscat and Schonburger comprising 10% of the blend. It's a straightforward, zippy, flavourful and uncomplicated wine which, for those reasons alone, makes it hard to put down. Dry, with a hint of sweetness, there's peach, orange, grapefruit and a kiss of honey on the palate.
This is a wine to be proud of! Lilac and rose petals, apricots and honey leap out of the glass with peach, nectarine, banana, and nutmeg on the palate. This wine was aged in stainless steel for 5 months, and has a medium body and a long finish. Pair this wine with chicken tagine with apricots and almonds, baked apples, and pear tarts.
Gorgeous aromatics on this wine with coffee, sweet tobacco, stewed dark fruits, and eucalyptus. On the palate, rhubarb jam, black pepper, savoury herbs, and a touch of menthol. Very good quality and a nice finish. The wine has been aged in French oak for 18 months and is both food friendly and lovely to sip on its own. Try pairing it with Tourtière, rosemary-rubbed lamb shanks, and charcuterie. This wine is sold out, the only way you can get it now is through the wine club!
This wine could almost masquerade as a Port without the alcohol intensity. It's deep and rich with notes of ripe plums, black fruit compote, and savoury herbs on the palate. This wine will pair perfectly with traditional Greek cuisine such as roasted lamb or beef, sizzling saganaki cheese, and herbed rice. Similarly, this wine is sold out, and the only way you can get it now is through the wine club!
Get these tantalizing wines from Lang Vineyards along with complete tasting notes and pairing suggestions! Sign up by Monday, Jan. 15.
