Are you looking for a new place for a date night, or an afternoon out with friends? Chaberton Estate Winery has fabulous bistro for you to enjoy, winery tours and a wine shop.
The first winery of the Fraser Valley, Domaine de Chaberton, was first opened in 1975. The winery is named after founder’s Claude and Inge Violet’s vineyard they had owned in France. They picked this location for the microclimate, south facing slope, soil quality and low rainfall. The name of the winery changed to Chaberton Estate Winery in 2014.
Eat at Bacchus Bistro
Chaberton Estate Winery’s Bacchus Bistro is a real gem with a Zagat rating of “Excellent”, which isn’t surprising when you feast on the locally made cuisine paired with their wine. The bistro cuisine is made fresh daily and covers many yummy dishes, from vegetarian to succulent meat dishes. Open for Lunch Wednesdays to Sundays 11:30-3:00 pm, and dinner hours are Friday and Saturday 5:30-9:00pm.
