A little bit about us
Why our wines are the best
When making a new wine we have one goal: make it as delicious as possible.
Because we're not a traditional winery, we don't have to conform to typical wine styles (What even is Gewürztraminer?). So our wines are generally a little different but they are always delicious.
We're the largest fruit winery in Canada, and we're constantly bringing home fresh hardware from the All Canadian Wine Championships.
No Grapes, 100% Fruit
Here at Northern Lights Winery we do things a little different. We don't use any grapes in our wine, instead all of our wines are 100% BC grown fruit.
However just like any other winery our wines are complex and interesting, while being deliciously fruit forward.
Vegan & Carbon Neutral
We are incredibly proud to be a carbon neutral winery. We reached this milestone by purchasing offsets through Offsetters which counteract the carbon emissions generated through our daily operations.
To measure our annual carbon emissions, we partnered with Dr. Sinead Earley and Shauna Kelly from the University of Northern British Columbia. They divided our operations into three sections in terms of carbon emissions: Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3. The first section, Scope 1, looks at our use of natural gas, propane, and diesel, Scope 2 analyzes electricity usage, and Scope 3 covers travel and distribution emissions. To be considered carbon neutral, businesses need to offset Scope 1 and 2 while Scope 3 is an optional analysis to provide insights into limiting future carbon emissions.
Not only is sustainability important to us, but we’ve also ensured our wines are 100% vegan. During the fining process many wineries choose various animal byproducts to remove impurities from their wines. Most often these fining agents are egg whites, gelatin, casein, or isinglass. Instead of these traditional fining agents, we choose to use bentonite clay. This ensures our wines have the clarity we strive for while eliminating any need for animal byproducts.
Where we started
Northern Lights Estate Winery (NLEW), a division of Family Fast Foods Ltd., started construction in 2013 with the intention of becoming BC’s most northern winery. Built on the banks of the Nechako River, at the base of Prince George’s famous cutbanks, we opened our doors in 2015 and quickly grew to be BC’s largest fruit winery. Much of this property produces the fruit that you’ll find in our wines including gooseberries, raspberries, apples, rhubarb, black currants, cherries, and blueberries. Our wines are proudly crafted using only BC-grown fruits both from our farms and our partner farms across the province.
Caralee from Red Deer, AB
"Best light wine I’ve ever tasted, great with a meal or just chillin’ on the deck."
Lauren from Richmond, BC
"Haven't tried them all yet, but so far I am so happy with my purchase. Currently drinking the Seduction, it is amazing. So far just very smooth and semi-sweet wines that aren't overwhelming.
Items were shipped quickly with tracking numbers. When I opened the package there was a super cute note and even an amazing wine pun. Will 100% be ordering again."
CloAnne from Grand Forks, BC
"My order was filled and shipped very fast. E-mails were sent to keep me updated on the shipment. So far I have tried a couple of the flavors of wine and I quite enjoyed them. I will certainly order from Northern Lights again."
