Wines of Canada



Township 7 Naramata Bench

 

Founded in 2001, Township 7 has two BC wineries, one situated in the scenic Fraser Valley and the other on the picturesque Naramata Bench in Canada's premier wine region, the Okanagan Valley on the Naramata Bench.



Township 7 Langley Township

 

The winery was named after this historic community of south Langley, its original name in the late 1800s was “Township 7”- the cottage on our property is an original building from the 1930s. Township 7 quickly establish a reputation for quality wines especially their Merlot.

Wild at the Winery

Both locations host a wide range of events. Township 7 Vineyards Naramata and Twisted Tree Theatre/Bare Bones Production have partnered for their second year to produce one of Oscar Wilde’s most enduringly popular plays, An Ideal Husband. This event is held in July.

The majority of their wines are crafted in the Okanagan, offering visitors the opportunity to see the workings of the winery first hand. Two acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Gewürztraminer vines were planted on theOkanagan property in the spring of 2004, and additional Merlot, Malbec and Petite Verdot vines planted in 2005

Owner Mike Raffinhas been involved in many industry associations including the BC Wine Grape Council and currently is the Vice Chair of the Board of the BC Wine Institute.

 

The Wines

Merlot 2007 - almost form the very beginning Township 7 has had a reputation for its quality Merlot. The 2007 Merlot has unique and vibrant flavours that leap to the palate. Blueberry, cherry and cranberry dominate the fruit spectrum. A dash of Cabernet Sauvignon adds to the enjoyment

Merlot 2008 - Although I have not tasted this one some say its eveb better than 2007

2007 Reserve Chardonnay - good nose great flavour smooth score 90

2009 Viognier - spice notes with honey flavours a very good Viognier

Seven Stars Sparkling 2008 - Crafted from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown on our Langley estate vineyards, our 7 Stars sparkling is produced in the traditional méthode champenoise style of French champagne. The wine seems to always sell out.
