The Preservatory at Vista D’oro Farms & Winery is a culinary agritourism destination located in South Langley, BC on ten acres overlooking Campbell Valley Park and Golden Ears Mountain Range, just 45 minutes South of Vancouver.
Dedicated to providing an ultimate agritourism experience, Vista D’oro Farms & Winery grows heritage orchard fruits, culinary herbs and grapes all of which can be found in our preserves & wines in some form – whether in our flagship D’oro-fortified Walnut Wine, a Curried Apple with Almond Preserve or a combination of the two in our Black Cherry & Pinot Noir.
We look forward to sharing our passion for great food and fine wines.

The Preservatory has created a seasonal line of Artisanal Preserves using traditional cooking methods combined with distinctive flavour pairings. Whether served on a cheese board or alongside fresh baked scones or hot buttered toast; our preserves are truly versatile, simply delicious and always seasonal! Serve as a decadent crepe filling, try them as an accompaniment to roast pork or simply enjoy them straight out of the jar!
We have been producing the line since 2002. The line is seasonal; we do 6 flavours per season. We use traditional old world techniques, small batches, copper pots, in-season fruit. Much of which is either grown at Vista D’oro or at other near-by farms by farmers we trust. We prepare all of the fruit by hand and only use perfectly ripe fruit. We do not add pectin, only sugar and lemon juice and rely on the fruits own naturally occurring pectin for set. This makes for a softer set and allows the fruits’ flavour & texture to maintain its integrity. This also gives the preserves more clarity in both look & taste. This is also why we don’t use ”˜jam grade’ fruit as it’s usually past it prime and has little to no natural pectin left. We also use less sugar than most commercially produced preserves.
The preserves themselves are meant to be used in a variety of ways – with the additions of wine and alcohol as well as the spices, they are excellent on a cheese board with a variety of cheeses or an antipasto platter alongside charcuterie. They are also perfect for finishing sauces, making vinaigrettes & glazing meats. Great over ice cream – or cheesecake, they really are truly versatile. They are just as great on a simple piece of toast or simply straight off a spoon!
