Fraser Valley Cidery

22128 – 16th Avenue, Langley, BC

 

The Fraser Valley, Langley Township has its first cidery.

Rachel Bolongaro After a 20 year career in engineering was looking for a new challenge. Starting a cidery was the answer.

In 2014 Rachel and her Husband purchased a 12 acre farm. Less than two years later the cidery was built, and with the help of friends 1800 trees orchard has been planted. The orchard has over 25 varieties.

I took along a friend to visit the cidery early Friday morning. We were the first to arrive and had the full attention of the owner and Cider maker. We waited in the nicely designed tasting room well Rachel went through some opening procedures. We noticed a food menu was available. Outside were numerous picnc tables.

Been newly opened the grounds required some work, in times the orchard will grow and provided a magnificient setting to enjoy a sandwich and quality cider on the patio.

Fraser Valley Cidery offers five ciders from a Bone Dry to the Honey Cider. The Honey Cider was our favourite. Just a nice sweet touch of honey..

The Fraser Valley is expanding a very rapid rate. In the next year or so new meaderies and wineries will be open to join the established wineries, Chaberton, Backyard Vineyards, Township 7 and Blackwood Lane.

Recently opened wineries include Chateau Blue Winery in Pit Meadows,SingleTree Winery in Abbotsford and 1st R.O.W. Estate Winery in Surrey. Opening soon Caven Cellars Aldergrove, Country Vines in Richmond, Cityside Winery in Vancouver, Glass House Estate Winery Langley, Maple Creek Winery in Surrey, Odd Society Winery in Vancouver, Okanagan Cidery also in Vancouver, and Precept Wine in Surrey. Not far behind will be Ripples Winery in Abbotsford and Spring Land Winery in Langley

also look for Sunday Cider, Snowgoose Brewery Inc.
