Wineries & Wine Tours
Grapes on a vine (Andrea Johnson photo)
With the popularity of the eat-local, 100-Mile Diet, Abbotsford's farm-to-fork tourism is growing in leaps and bounds.
Not only are farms producing quality produce but local wineries are gaining recognition for excellent wines. Lotusland Vineyards and Mt Lehman Winery are two wineries in Abbotsford that are crafting local vintages.
Lotusland Vineyards may only stand on three and a half hectares, but the wines from this vineyard supply some of the top restaurants on the West Coast. Lotusland is very much a hands-on family business, from planting to bottling. Additional helping hands come through the World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF), a program that enables city dwellers and others the chance to experience rural life.
Wine tours and tastings are offered; the Ortega and Girlsrmeaner are the wines to note.
