Ghost of the Bogs

Categories: Agritourism, Wine & Food

It’s one week until this year’s spookiest holiday and many will be celebrating at one of the numerous great events happening around the community.  If you’re planning a Halloween party of your own, and want to keep to the theme beyond the decorations, a little holiday ‘spirit’ may be fitting.  Langley’s own Fort Wine Co. has bottled white cranberries that is described to “leave you with pleasant chills up your back with its dry but crisp flavour”.  ‘Ghost of the Bogs’ name and label makes this the perfect libation to spook your guests with in the dark of the night.

As a fairly recent new resident to the area, I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing many new things, and have brought an outsiders view to my work which complemented that of my coworkers; most of whom were born and raised in Langley.  I had to learn the routes throughout the community; how to get to the grocery store, where the local farmers market is, which the best exit off the freeway is to get to where I needed to go, and so on.  Because of my many exploratory travels, I had the opportunity to discover a lot about a place I really knew nothing about.

A Haunting Tour into the Past – Fort Langley’s “Grave Tales”

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture, Itineraries, Wine & Food

Fort Langley offers ghastly, ghostly and eerily erudite October walking tours!

One recent evening, we meet our guide, who’s outfitted in Hudson Bay trader garb. While fortifying ourselves with Fort Wine Company’s cranberry wine, fine BC merlot and delicious local cuisine at Beatniks’ Bistro, Amn Johal introduces us to some of Fort Langley’s monthly themed events. “Grave Tales 2012 itself is based on scholarly Fort Langley research, residents’ insights…and notable paranormal encounters!”

Local Wine & Turkey Pairings

Categories: Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Wine & Food

Thanksgiving is now only a few days away and if you’re like me, frantically trying to hunt down the perfect sized turkey at the nearest supermarket or local turkey farm, hoping there are still a few boxes of stuffing left on the shelves (I wish I could say I had my own secret recipe), and planning on picking up some of the freshest cranberries at Saturday’s Cranberry Festival in Fort Langley, then you might have also forgotten to pick up a bottle of perfectly paired local wine.

First Day of Autumn

Children are back in school, the heat of the summer has gone, and a crisp breeze makes you zip up your jacket and throw on a scarf. As you head out the door you are met with golden leaves scattered about the lawn at your feet. It’s autumn.
