Guenther Lang and his wife, Kristina, pur­chased the vine­yard when they immi­grated to Canada in 1980. Guenther selected the property ”” high up on the bench ”” for its excel­lent soil condi­tions and micro-climate. Addi­tional prop­er­ties along the bench have added to the over­all acreage available to the win­ery. Dur­ing the 80’s, most of the hybrid vari­eties were pulled out and replaced with vinifera vari­etals: whites such as Pinot Auxerrois, Gewurz­traminer, Riesling and most recently Viognier. Red varieties included Pinot Noir, Merlot and Pinot Meunier.

The loca­tion is cool enough to grow Gewurz­traminer that retains refresh­ing acid­ity. The vineyard also benefits from good air drainage, which allows the vine­yard to remain frost free well into autumn. This enables the Riesling to ripen for excellent late harvest wines. The win­ery has also enjoyed great suc­cess with ice-wines and a unique dessert wine called “The Orig­inal Cana­dian Maple Wine”. The only hybrid varietal remain­ing is the Marechal Foch, which remains one of Lang’s most pop­ular wines.

Lang Vineyards was the first to receive its 'Farm Gate Winery' license and opened up in the spring of 1990. The small but superbly equipped winery has grown well beyond the farm winery concept since then.

In 2005 Guen­ther Lang decided to sell the winery and retire after many years of success and see­ing the small opera­tion turn into one of the lead­ing wineries in the Okanagan.

Lang Vineyards success has been proven by an incredible track record of recent wine awards such as Best White Wine in Canada, Platinum Medals, Double Golds and many others.
