A recent Whistler client says…
“I was expecting basic service from Vancouver to Whistler, but got so much more! Our driver (Tej) was so accommodating and knowledgeable as he navigated us first to a grocery for utinsels so we could eat our picnic lunch, and then along the Sea to Sky Highway. Tej provided insight on the various places along the way, and also made recommendations on what to do and see in Whistler.”

Langley Wine Tour

Backyard Vineyards
Luxury Transport Inc. offers private Langley Wine Tours for small to large groups.  We recently visited our local Langley Wineries to indulge in some fabulous flavours and take in some beautiful scenery.

Langley wineries are only about 45 minutes outside of downtown Vancouver and offer an extraordinary escape and memorable experience.  There are a great number of first class wines to taste and some of the finest cuisine to be paired with it.
Truly a unique day tour experience!

Township 7 Winery Township 7 Vineyard & Winery oozes charm with a open-style tasting room overlooking the vines that produce their award-winning wines.  Some of the grapes also come from the south Okanagan Valley.  They are open year round, so you can pop in for a tasting or tour or even plan to attend one of their wine or culinary events or seminars.

Backyard VineyardsBackyard Vineyards’s grapes are made from 100% BC grapes grown in their Langley vineyard with fruitful additions from the Fraser Valley and South Okanagan.  They are known for their fun and bubbly wines and have been recognized both locally and internationally for them.  They also offer an exceptional picnic lunch with a variety of mouthwatering platters to choose from for your group as well as charming indoor and outdoor tasting and picnicking spaces.

Vista D'Oro WineryVista D’Oro Farms & Winery prides itself in very traditional techniques and are dedicated to the production of unique wines made in small batches on their Langley farm.  They grow their own produce on Vista D’Oro that is then used on their production and they stand out with their hand-crafted and unique walnut wine.  Fresh and fabulous.

Domaine De Chaberton WineryDomaine De Chaberton Winery & Bacchus Bistro is an award winning Langley Winery that sits on 55-acres of impressive property.  It is the 3rd largest winery in BC and the oldest in the Fraser Valley.  Guests are welcome to pack their own picnic to enjoy in their massive garden space and picnic tables out front or make reservations to dine in culinary French bistro bliss at their Bacchus Bistro.  Their tour is well worth it with a walk-about through their private tasting room, their all impressive production machinary, and an up close and personal feel of their coveted Cedar Room full of fabulous wood barrels.  They really allow you deep into the process.

Domaine De Chaberton WineryMake time this summer for a private Langley Wine Tour!  A 4-hour tour will take you to experience tastings and tour at all 4 of the wineries above and a 6-hour will allow time for a picnic or dining experience.  Let us plan the day for you and take you on a wine and culinary experience to remember right in Vancouver’s backyard!
