Mother’s Day at Township 7 in Langley!

On April 25, our lives changed forever when we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Chloe Marie, to our family. In just one week, I have learned what is most important in life- my new family of three. As a new mother, I am taking it day by day working on finding balance with our newborn. To be honest, I feel like we’ve been blessed with a perfect little angel because she just makes things seem so easy!

With my first Mother’s Day quickly approaching next Sunday, I knew I wanted to celebrate in a very special way. It’s been over 10 months since I’ve tasted at BC wineries, so I decided to plan a trip to our Langley wineries! To be honest, I am not sure how many wineries we will visit- it’ll depend on our how our little babe does on the big outing- but we’ve got one special event on our list.

Township 7 in Langley is hosting a special chocolate and wine pairing event as part of their Mother’s Day celebrations. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with their 2016 Seven Stars Eclipse Sparkling win, followed by a glass of their just released 2018 Rose, paired with three chocolates by local Abbotsford chocolatier, ChocolaTas. Live tunes is by Vancouver folk duo, the Coalmont Band. There are limited seats available at 12 and 2:30pm seatings. Tickets are only $25 and will sell out soon! Be sure to get yours today by calling 604-532-1766 or clicking here. I also hear they are releasing their Rose the same weekend! Be sure to follow along @uncorkBC as I will be sharing event highlights during the day.

Wishing all the mama’s out there a very special Mother’s Day next weekend!

unnamed

I seriously can’t think of anything more romantic then a day-trip to BC Wine Country to enjoy tastings, stroll the vineyards and enjoy quality time with your loved wine.

This weekend, the Scenic Sip wineries of Lake Country have made it so easy for you to do just that!

Each of the 6 participating wineries are offering a special wine pairing experience along with tastings. And, in lieu of tasting fees, wineries are accepting donations for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

The event is happening on February 9 and 10 from 11am-4pm. Participating wineries include:

  • Ancient Hill
  • Blind Tiger Vineyards
  • The Chase *brand new, plan for lunch here
  • Ex Nihilo
  • 50th Parallel *renovated tasting room, a must stop in our books!
  • Gray Monk
  • Intrigue Wines * don’t forget to pick up a bottle of “I Do” bubbles for later
