Winter is dying a long, slow, painful death this year in Prince George, bringing both positives and negatives. Yes, the snow lingers, but the snow also provides an excuse to stay inside with a nice bottle of wine. Prince George has one Winery and so I went out for a visit. Here is my Northern Lights Winery Review.
Northern Lights Winery is the most northern winery that I know of in B.C. The next closest winery is about a 6 hour drive South, making this place very unique. Prince George’s climate isn’t conducive for growing grapes but Northern Lights has its own orchard. Northern Lights specializes in fruity wines, with much of their ingredients produced in their own orchard, and the rest originating from Southern B.C.
Fun Fact: Construction on the Winery started in 2013 and as you can see from my photos it has a very contemporary design. Recently, a Bistro has been added. I did not have a chance to visit the Bistro this time, but I was able to sample some of their wines.
Wine tasting is only $3 and gives you a sample of four of their most popular wines. I sampled their Bumbleberry, Cassis Noir, Seduction, and Curée Blanche wines. I’m no wine expert but they were all pretty tasty. Located on the banks of the Nechako river, Northern Lights certainly has a beautiful spot. Since it’s the end of March, you’ll notice a lot of snow in my pictures but I’m sure this place must be absolutely beautiful in the summer. I’ll definitely have to come back for a revisit.
Inside the winery are a number of paintings featuring scenes around Prince George. I particularly like this one above featuring Mr. PG! Now that’s what I call art! 🙂
