This lengthy Thanksgiving post is brought to you thanks to my dad, his tractor and a secret heart he mowed into our field at the back of the estate this summer. What makes this so adorable is that my dad never told anyone about this heart, until I found it inadvertently on Google maps this morning whilst updating our business hours for this weekend. The heart was for his own joy, and I guess for those flying overhead. The thing I know for sure about my dad is his endless gratitude for his blessings. He is always thankful. At the end of a long day, he always tells us how thankful he is for having had another great day. So this weekend as we celebrate the blessings of the year and the end of harvest, I want to tell you all how thankful we are for all of you who have come into our lives, extend our heartfelt thanks for indulging us and making my parents’ passion project a success and adding joy to each and every day! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Ps. Yes, we are open tomorrow! #langleyfresh #bcwine #cvwineroute #heart #thanksgiving #gratitude #kubota #googlemaps
The sweet sound of fermentation after the long hours of harvest! This is our delightfully pink, estate grown Pinot Gris fermenting in our stainless steel tanks after 24 hours of skin contact. A few more days of harvesting until the 2018 season is complete! #langleyfresh #cvwineroute #bcwine #pinotgris #vintage2018 #harvest
Today we celebrate our parents’ 46th anniversary. The fact that they are still very much in love, pursuing their dreams, healthy and active is a true blessing for my sisters and I and our families to witness. Their romantic anniversary getaway a few years ago to the Okanagan is what lead to planting our vineyard and subsequently opening Glass House Estate Winery. They truly live the Glass House motto, “make everyday a special occasion.” Here’s to them!
We are so thrilled to be hosting the West Fine Art Show in partnershipwith @langleyhospice for another year! Join us this weekend for the perfect pairing of incredible art and delicious wine.

Harvest 2018 started today with our Madeleine Angevine. This means lots of quality time for my dad, Arthur and his tractor 😂 The grapes look perfect, and it looks as though we may be able to produce another Cabernet Franc from the estate! 🍇❤️🍷#glasshousewine #bcwine #vancouverwinecountry #cvwineroute #wine #bcvqa #langleyfresh #kingarthur
